El Paso Water Parks don’t officially open until the Memorial Day weekend, but you won’t have to brave the hot El Paso sun until then because the city is giving each park a “soft opening” before the holiday weekend reopening.

Next up is Camp Cohen this Saturday and Sunday. Here’s what you need to know about the planned “soft opening” at the Northeast water park.
