Alameda Waterpark will have a delayed opening until more lifeguards are hired
BUTLER COUNTY, PA (May 28, 2021) - Butler County Parks and Recreation’s Alameda Waterpark will have a delayed opening to the public, as a result of insufficient lifeguards on duty. The temporary delay could range anywhere from one to two weeks, with the goal of being opened by June 19, 2021.
“So many businesses have been impacted by this pandemic, and are struggling to find employees. Alameda Waterpark is a highly-visited attraction in Butler, and we wanted to offer extra benefit opportunities to those who are qualified to be a lifeguard. It’s our job to support our citizens and help in any way we can,” said Leslie Osche, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners for Butler County.
Residents who have a seasonal pool pass to Alameda Waterpark will receive an extra $50.00 punch card that can be used as a gift or to bring additional guests.
The new program will provide approximately $1,600.00 in incentives in addition to an employee's hourly rate of $10.00-$12.00, plus additional bonus opportunities. The incentives include certification fees, referrals, a complimentary family pool pass and more. This new incentive program was created in effort to attract high school and college age lifeguards as well as retirees who are interested in working at Alameda Waterpark throughout the summer months. Lifeguard training is planned for the week of June 7-12.
More information about the lifeguard incentive program can be found at Butler County Parks and Recreation’s website and interested applicants can apply at www.butlercountypa.gov. offering a variety of special incentives for new lifeguards.
