El Paso News

El Paso, Texas (KTSM) — The City of El Paso’s first water park is ready to open Saturday morning.

Camp Cohen is the first of four water parks in the area set to open for the first time. The park is where Cohen Stadium, where the El Paso Diablos used to play, in Northeast El Paso was located.

Starting Saturday, the water park will be open every day from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m.

In partnership with Destination El Paso, the city created the park with a leisure pool, a pool for laps, a small pool for kids, slides, water playground, lazy river and, if you’re feeling adventurous, a climbing wall.

In 2012, multi-million dollar projects were approved by El Paso voters as part of the quality of life bond. The water parks were some of those projects. The city said Camp Cohen cost about $13 million.

The three other El Paso Water Park, Oasis, Chapoteo, and Lost Kingdom, are set to open later this summer.

If you’re interested in working at one of the water parks, there are many positions still needing to be filled.
