City set to celebrate Camp Cohen Water Park opening this weekend

Officials with the City of El Paso and Destination El Paso announced Monday that the opening of Camp Cohen, the City’s first Water Park, is set for this Memorial Day Weekend.

The Water Park, located at 9700 Gateway North Boulevard, will be open every day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The park features a leisure pool, lap pool, kiddie pool, slides, water playground, lazy river, and climbing wall. Visitors can also enjoy the mountain view from lounge chairs, relax in a cabana at the Wanderers Retreat or enjoy a tasty snack from the Stove Cove Café at the Starlight Plaza.

“After much public anticipation, we’re excited to be opening Camp Cohen, the first of four El Paso Water Parks to open throughout all parts of our community,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez.

“The multigenerational recreational facilities we recently opened and now the opening of our water parks marks our organization’s commitment to delivering the best state-of-the-art recreational facilities to our residents.”

The new facility is the first of four El Paso Water Park locations to open in the City. The other three El Paso Water Park—Oasis, Chapoteo, and Lost Kingdom—will be opening later this summer.

Developed through the 2012 Quality of Life Bond Program, Camp Cohen is slated to be one of four premier regional destinations for residents and visitors.

Officials add that the park, which cost about $13 million, is the first prominent feature in the Reimagining Cohen vision for the Northeast to transform the previous Cohen Stadium footprint with a public space.
