Sidney Water Park hiring day planned

SIDNEY – Every summer, kids look forward to doing cannonballs off the side of the pool, playing sharks and minnows in the water with their friends, and filling up on ice cream and candy from the concession stand.

And, every summer, Sidney area residents have the opportunity to do more than earn a paycheck – they get to enjoy a job that’s rewarding, help make their community a safer place, and learn life-saving skills that will last a lifetime.

“After closing last summer due to the pandemic, we’re excited to be opening the pool and providing entertainment to the community and employment opportunities to Sidney area residents,” said Duane Gaier, Sidney Park director.
