City of El Paso Spray Parks to Open Memorial Day Weekend
Woo-hoo, city spray parks have been given the okay to reopen Memorial weekend.
Usually, by now, the spray parks and spray pads are there to offer El Pasoans water-splashing relief from the heat, but this year had its challenges.
"Several of the spray parks [were] plagued by vandalism during the last few months," the city explained via press release. "COVID-19…also delayed the delivery of necessary parts to complete repairs and maintenance to be able to operate the spray parks."
But, the obstacles have been overcome, and the spray parks are good to go starting this weekend.

Since they first opened five years ago, each mini oasis in the desert has become a destination place to catch a break from the brutal El Paso heat. In addition to numerous water features, they all have shaded areas and picnic tables -- and best of all, they're free to use.
