Rapid City pools, parks, golf courses to open this summer; City seeking seasonal help
RAPID CITY, S.D. — The Rapid City pools, parks, and golf courses will be open this summer after being closed in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are excited to announce the City pools will be open this summer,” said City Parks and Recreation Director Jeff Biegler. “COVID-19 impacted the community in so many ways this past year, including severely limiting our recreational opportunities and closure of our community pools.”
With the anticipated openings comes a need for seasonal employees, and the City has numerous openings for landscape maintenance workers and mowers, greenhouse workers, park laborers, custodial, forestry, and irrigation workers. The recreational division is looking to hire lifeguards, personal trainers, concessions, landscape maintenance and facility maintenance, golf cart workers, golf clubhouse staff, starter/marshals, and junior golf coaches. Lifeguards are needed for City pools at Horace Mann, Parkview, Jimmy Hilton and Rapid City Swim Center pools. Applicants must have a current American Red Cross Lifeguard certification or the ability to obtain the certification, and be 15 years or older.
“Summer may be months away, but now is the time when we begin looking for dozens of workers that provide valuable assistance in getting our parks, golf courses and pools ready and maintained,” said Doug Lowe, City Recreation Division Director. “These positions are great first-job opportunities as well as great positions for workers with various levels of experience and skills. We offer competitive wages and the job experiences are rewarding.”
Interested applicants can apply online here or contact Parks and Recreation at (605) 394-4175 or the Roosevelt Swim Center at (605) 394-5223.
