SPOKANE – With the grass beginning to green, the trees beginning to soften, and the pool weather fast approaching, Spokane City Parks and Recreation is on the final push to complete the main -seasonal labor to help maintain parks and facilities, support recreation programs, and prepare pools to open for another free swimming season.

Current positions include:

  • Golf course maintenance
  • Waterfront Park Amusement Attendant

Several seasonal positions are available throughout the organization with competitive salaries ranging from $15 to $22 per hour depending on job specifications and previous experience. Seasonal employees working 30 hours or more per week are entitled to medical benefits.

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