The City of El Paso invites children and families to have fun at a number of activities during the upcoming Easter weekend and Passover week.
A variety of events are planned from the El Paso Zoo, the Parks and Recreation Department, the El Paso Public Library and the Museums and Cultural Affairs Department. A list of events is posted on the “Easter Events” banner on the City of El Paso website.
Additionally, the City encourages the public to visit City parks during the holiday.
Easter weekend is traditionally one of the busiest times of the year to be outdoors with thousands of people using city parks to celebrate. The Parks and Recreation Department provides trash bins but encourages park visitors to bring trash bag(s), and if they bring pets to the park, make sure to clean up after them as well.
Also, used charcoal and other items should be taken home by park visitors or thrown in the proper receptacle and not on the ground, or next to trash bins or trees as the charcoal can damage grass and destroy trees.
Residents are asked to know the rules and be mindful when visiting City parks.
Do’s and Don’ts for Park Visitors
