SPOKANE – With the grass starting to green up, the trees starting to leaf out, and pool weather just around the corner, City of Spokane Parks & Recreation is on the last big push to round out the seasonal workforce to help maintain parks and facilities, support recreation programs, and get pools ready to open for another free swim season.

Current positions include:

  • Park Grounds
  • Golf Maintenance
  • Riverfront Park Attractions Attendant
  • Recreation day camp leaders
  • Athletic league site leads and sports officials
  • River shuttle operations
  • Lifeguard, swim instructors, and aquatic facilities support
  • Park Rangers

Multiple seasonal positions are available across the organization with competitive wages ranging from $15 - $22 per hour depending on job specification and prior experience. Seasonal employees working 30 hours or more per week are eligible for medical benefits.

“Just like much of the country, we’re struggling to hire the support we need,” said City of Spokane Parks & Recreation director Garett Jones. “Our temporary-seasonal staff are the backbone of our organization – they keep our parks clean and green, our restrooms and attractions open, our pools safe, and recreation programs enjoyable and accessible for all. I started with Parks & Recreation as a temp-seasonal; these jobs are not only valuable to the community, but can also lead to an amazing career.”
