Sparks Marina Swim Beach to Remain Closed Due to Lifeguard Shortage
Sparks, NV – The City of Sparks has announced that the Sparks Marina Swim Beach will remain closed until further notice due to a shortage of lifeguards.
“We have been actively recruiting, but so far have not had enough applicants to fill the open lifeguard positions,” said acting Parks and Recreation Director Tony Pehle. “We encourage anyone interested in becoming a lifeguard to apply soon.”
Currently, the City of Sparks has enough lifeguards to open Alf Sorensen and Deer Park pools, but depending on the staffing situation throughout the summer, the city may have to shorten hours or reduce the number of days the pools are open.
The City of Sparks provides all lifeguard training and certifications and working hours and days are flexible. Anyone interested in applying for a lifeguard position is encouraged to go to www.sparksrec.com/jobs.
