In order to increase safety and enhance the visitor experience at our county parks, the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders created the Park Attendant Program, which tasks part-time seasonal employees with patrolling the parks and educating patrons on the history and amenities each of our parks has to offer. The park attendants duties include park safety, deter prohibited behavior on park property, maintain cleanliness, monitor permits, offer educational insight, and are trained in first aid should the need arise. Park attendants are the link between the county and park guests. 

Anyone wishing to apply for a park attendant position may do so by calling the Parks and Recreation Department at 973-881-4832. Veterans who apply are given priority status.
