Summer is over, kids are back in school, and even though the temperatures haven't figured out that it's fall, it really is fall. That, unfortunately, means that a number of places that you could cool off at are now closed for the season. El Paso County Parks & Recreation is at the end of the swimming season and all county pools are now closed until late spring 2020. The pools closed on September 4.

El Paso County Pools that are now closed are:

Ascarate Aquatics Center, 6900 Delta Dr.
Gallegos Pool, 7361 Bosque Rd., Canutillo
Fabens Pool (Veterans Park), 526 N.E. G Avenue, Fabens

If you need more information on El Paso County Parks & Recreation Aquatics you can (915) 771-2380.

You can still swim during the fall and winter at El Paso City pools. There are ten City pools that remain open during the fall and winter seasons. Even though there are public swim hours, a lot of the pools are used either by private or pubic school swim teams, so make sure you call to find out when public lap swim is open and how many laps are open to the public. I swim at the Hawkins pool pretty often during the fall and winter months, but sometimes there is only one lane open to the public. Click here for the fall/winter schedule but definitely call and find out the swim team schedules so you aren't confined to just one lane. The phone numbers to the individual pools are listed in the schedule.
