The city says that these increased pool operations come as Austin Parks and Recreation reaches 551 lifeguards ready-to-work. 

PARD is continuing to hire and train lifeguards to operate summer pools. Lifeguards can earn between $16 and $19 an hour depending on experience and certifications and staff get bonuses, paid sick leave, free bus passes and flexible scheduling.
