Parks Facility Maintainers

Parks Maintenance is the backbone of the parks department. Our park system is highly used with some tremendous attractions. Keeping those locations mowed and manicured while being trash free and clean is a challenge but this job can offer you a great place to make a difference in your community while starting your career with the City of Bowling Green.
Fairview Cemetery has a long history of impeccable upkeep and care. Our team at Fairview works hard to ensure this treasured location meets those standards.



Landscape Gardeners
