Looking for a Summer Job? We Need Lifeguards!
Looking to have fun in the sun? Looking for that great summer job? Why don’t you apply to be a Lifeguard for the City of Bryan Parks and Recreation Department?
Not certified yet? Well, apply with us today, and you’ll get a lifeguard certification class, your whistle, and your pocket mask for only $150 for Bryan residents ($165 for non-residents). You can’t beat that deal!
And, that’s not all! If you work with us through the entire summer, we’ll reimburse you for your certification costs. It doesn’t get any better than that!
We need good people like you. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
We have cool parks, innovative recreational programs, and camps to challenge kids of all ages.
Our parks system covers 51 properties totaling 600 acres and continues to expand with new green space development. But it’s what we do with that turf that’s amazing: Sure, we have a bounty of baseball and soccer fields, but we also have inline hockey rinks, skateboard parks, splash pads, walking/hiking trails, two dozen pavilions for picnicking and reunions, and four terrific pools.
You’ll even find the unusual: We have a tremendous number of horseshoe pits for amateurs and pros alike. Even handicapped-accessible pits are easy to find. An indoor tennis facility? Ours is the only one in the region. We even make sure our annual Holiday Magic event features a snow hill for our powder-deprived residents. And a family camp out in a park? Yep, under the stars, by the campfire and making s’mores.
You can be anything you want to be in Bryan. Except bored.
