Summer is going to kick off in the Borderland soon and when it gets hot, you're going to want a cool place to beat the heat.

Luckily, the city has lots of great options for keeping cool that include the El Paso Waterparks. All four of the water parks, Camp Cohen, Chapoteo, Lost Kingdom, and Oasis will open soon for the summer season.

To keep up to date on when that opening day may be, check out their website or their Facebook page.

City of El Paso Spray Parks

Which brings us to the Spray Parks (or splash pads as some call them)!


The good news is that the El Paso Spray Parks will be open starting May 27 and run through September 10.

For those of us who are looking for a budget friendly option, the spray parks are free- well almost all of them. There are eleven in total at parks across the city, ten are free and one is not.

The El Paso Zoo Hunt Family Desert Springs Splash Pad is not free, you must pay the admission price to enter the Zoo.
