Anyone who has lived in El Paso for a minute knows how hot it can get in the summer, and also knows how a need for a way to cool down is essential.

Good news! The City of El Paso announced it is ready to open the spray parks for the season.

The nine spray parks and the splash pad at San Jacinto Plaza officially open for the season on Memorial Day Weekend which begins on Saturday, May 27. They will be open every day from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m.

They are a good option for a couple of reasons. If you have toddlers who don’t know how to swim yet, the spray parks don’t have any deep water. They are simply sprinklers that also have large buckets which are used to drop water and create a waterfall-like effect.

They are also … FREE (unlike the city’s water parks).

And remember - there is now a hybrid splash pad at the Pavo Real location. Not only can humans enjoy a splash pad... but a dedicated splash pad is there just for dogs.
Pavo Real, where dogs can splash, too! (

The spray parks are operated and maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department.
