EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The city of El Paso offers 11 different spray parks all around town that are free for anyone to use.
Many El Pasoans are finding ways to cool down as the temperatures start reaching 100 degrees.
At Westside Community Park, one El Paso mom and a first-time splash pad visitor was surprised of the city’s water amenities.
“I like it. I think I’m gonna have to bring her every day now,” said Suzanne Goned.
At Pavo Real Enhanced Park in the Lower Valley, you can find refreshment for yourself but for your furry companions too, as this location has two separate spray parks for humans and dogs.
Some El Pasoans are opting for the city’s spray parks as they also offer relief for their wallets.
“We were kind of looking for free places where kids can have fun,” said Kristalyn Clayborne, who was at the Braden Aboud Memorial Park with her family. “We’re kind of on a budget and we have a lot of kids.”
Simon Barrientos, a dad that came to the park with his daughter, explained he still doesn’t feel comfortable going to the pool, so the spray parks offer a good alternative.
