City celebrates opening of Mayan-Themed Lost Kingdom Water Park Sunday

The City of El Paso and Destination El Paso are set for the grand opening of the Lost Kingdom Water Park at 11 a.m. Sunday, June 20.

“During the City’s strategic planning process, we challenged ourselves to re-imagine our aquatics program,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez. “The result is providing amenities our community can describe as exceptional, as evident by sold-out opening weekends for our water parks. Our community has embraced this amenity, which could not have come at a better time with record breaking heat.”

The City’s third regional water park, located at 6001 Hughey, will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The 5-acre water park, sits adjacent to the baseball field at Ross Middle School, and officials add that it supports the City’s vision to “provide exceptional recreational, educational and cultural opportunities for our community.”

The Mayan-themed park features a leisure pool, lap pool, kiddie pool, slides, water playground, lazy river, and climbing wall.

Visitors can enjoy lounge chairs and find rejuvenation in a cabana in the Jade Villas or enjoy a delicious meal from the Tres Milpas Terrace Café at the Pok-A-Tok Plaza.

Developed through the 2012 Quality of Life Bond Program, Lost Kingdom Water Park is one of four destinations for residents and visitors.

The new facility is the third of four El Paso Water Park locations to open in the City. The remaining El Paso Water Park —Chapoteo—will be opening later this month.
