Merrimack Park Recreation Association (MPRA) is a 300-family shareholder owned cooperative club, governed by these bylaws.
If you would like to become an MPRA Equity Member, please complete the Equity Member Application here. There is a $50 non-refundable application fee.
As of March 2012, the value of an Equity Membership share is $1,900. Owning a share guarantees your swimming privileges every year and confers voting rights on major decisions which affect the pool. You will pay annual summer dues, which are set by the Board of Directors at a discounted rate.
The 2021 Equity Member season dues are $320 for the first adult immediate family member residing in your household and $80 for each of the next three additional immediate family member swimmers in the household. There is no charge for additional immediate family members residing in your household beyond the first four, or children under the age of 2. The Caregiver fee, regardless of whether they swim, for Equity Members is $80.
If you have a caregiver who brings your children to the pool, be sure to register them in advance and pay the $80 fee, as Daily Guest Passes may not be used this year.
The fee to maintain your membership but be inactive for the summer is $200 and is limited to three season waivers during the lifetime of a membership. Equity Members who are away for a season may transfer their swim privileges to renters.
Season dues not received by the deadline are subject to a $50 per month late fee.
When and if a member wishes to redeem their share, there is a procedure outlined in the bylaws. Please note that an MPRA Equity Membership is an asset separate from one’s home. However, transferring a share to buyers upon the sale of your home is permitted and can make your home more attractive.
