Water Park Locations

Camp Cohen is on the Northeast in the former Cohen Stadium site. The Far East has Oasis inside the "The Beast" Regional Park near the intersection of Montana and Hueco Club Road.

Chapoteo is just down the street from Lionel Forti Park at 1225 Giles, and Lost Kingdom sits in the Bassett Place area at 6001 Hughey.

While they all have the same basic water features, such as water slides, climbing walls, lazy river current channels, and kiddie playgrounds, each has its own unique theme and signature feature.

Opening Day 2023

The water splashing fun begins on Saturday, May 27.

All four El Paso Water Parks will open daily starting on the 27th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. through the end of July. After that, the parks will only be open Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day weekend
