Summer is here and Mother Nature has wasted no time heating things up.

But there’s no need to sweat the relentless heat -- even if you don’t live near one of the new city water parks or even inside El Paso city limits -- because El Paso County Parks and Recreation just dropped some good news; all county-run pools are now open daily through Labor Day, September 6.
