Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation is seeking to fill open lifeguard positions at its four outdoor pools; Norton, Algonquin, Sun Valley and at Nelson Hornbeck Park in Fairdale.

In addition to current staff, the Metro Parks and Recreation aquatics division says there’s room for approximately 15 more lifeguards to be hired over the summer.

Metro Parks and Recreation lifeguards start out at $10 per hour. For more information or how to apply, visit here or call the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center at 502/897-9949.

Metro Parks and Recreation lifeguards must:

  • Possess and maintain lifeguard certification, CPR and First Aid
  • Able to observe swimmers for safety and sit for prolonged periods of time
  • Ability to react quickly and calmly in emergency situations
  • Able to exercise tact and diplomacy when interacting with the public

Lifeguards who do not meet those qualifications have the opportunity to attend a lifeguard training class from 4-9 p.m. at the Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center from Monday, May 22nd to Friday May 26. The cost of the class is $200 – but that fee is waived if upon completion the candidate pledges to work for Metro Parks and Recreation during the 2017 summer outdoor pool season.
