City of AustinFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department hired over 1K lifeguards, opened all 32 operational pools, and expanded hours at Deep Eddy Pool.
In the 2023 swim season, the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department hired over 1000 lifeguards, opened all 32 operational pools, and expanded hours at Deep Eddy Pool.
The Department would like to thank Mayor and Council, City leadership, Human Relations, partner organizations, communications staff, and the dedicated lifeguards who helped make this possible.
Maintaining 32 operational pools and 11 splash pads is also a testament to the hard work of the Aquatic Maintenance team who routinely resolve a multitude of issues related to Austin’s aging aquatic infrastructure as noted in the Department's Aquatic Vision Plan.
Lifeguard hiring has closed for the summer. Please check LifeguardAustin.com in August of 2023 for year-round lifeguarding opportunities as well as training classes for 2024.
