Break out the swimsuits and sun block.

The heat is on and if you and the kids are ready to get wet, you have numerous options on how and where to cool off for the summer of 2021, including two brand-new water parks.

There is no need to sweat the relentless heat when there are plenty of places all over the city and surrounding areas for water fun in the hot El Paso sun. Just pick a pool, pad, or water park from the list below, pack up some snacks and sunscreen, and get to splashing.

City of El Paso Water Parks

The city plans to open four neighborhood water parks this summer, two of which are good to go: Camp Cohen, and Oasis. While they all have the same basic water features, such as water slides, lazy river current channels and kiddie playgrounds, each has one signature feature, as well. Oasis, for instance, features El Paso's only surfing machine.
