Animal Services to Provide 100 Free Microchips Saturday

El Paso Animal Services will be offering free microchips to the first 100 pets at the Parks & Recreation Pet Festival beginning at 9 a.m. this Saturday, February 23, at the Westside Community Park, located at 7400 High Ridge.

Animal Services officials share that they are “nearing their goal of having a 90% live-release rate of its pets in the facility, but despite this success, thousands of lost pets continue to enter the Animal Services Center every month.”

“When pet owners keep their pets in their homes, they are helping El Paso with its goal of becoming a “no-kill” community,” officials added.

For pets to receive a microchip, pet owners must bring a valid photo ID and have their pet(s) on a leash or in a crate.

Microchips will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The Animal Services Animal Protection team will also be providing free microchip checks to pets that already have a microchip, to ensure microchips are updated with correct contact information.

Additional events will be held throughout the Spring. To find out when the next event, visit their website or follow them on social media.

WHAT: Free microchips provided to the first 100 pets to visit them at the Westside Community Park Available on a first-come, first-served basis.

WHEN: Saturday, February 23 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until all microchips are administered) WHERE: Westside Community Park 7400 High Ridge

Grand Opening Celebration Set for Saturday for Westside Spray Park

The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Department invites families for an official grand opening of the Westside Spray Park at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 13, at Westside Community Park at 7400 High Ridge.

The grand opening celebration of the City’s newest spray park will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by a family-friendly celebration that includes free games, live music, educational booths and free food.

The Westside Spray Park features a splash pad with a large dump bucket and more than 20 water features such as spouts and fountains. The spray park has other amenities, such as a shaded are picnic tables, security lighting, security cameras, ADA accessible sidewalks and landscaping.

The Westside Spray Park is the fifth spray park completed by the City, costing approximately $884,000. Funding for the project came from end of year savings.

The spray parks operate by recirculating water through filtration and chemical sanitation systems, not unlike those found in pools. The typical water turnover is 30 to 60 minutes, which is the same for most wading pools.

Customers control the water usage by depressing a button or passing near motion detectors. If there is no one playing in an area, then no water flows.

Additional spray parks are under construction throughout the City, one in each of the City Representative Districts. The City recently opened Grandview Spray Park and Pavo Real Spray Park; Sue Young Spray Park and Hidden Valley Spray Park opened in 2016. The following spray parks will open just in time for summer:

  • Marty Robbins Spray Park, 11600 Vista Del Sol Dr.
  • Braden Aboud Spray Park, 4325 Riverbend Dr.
  • Salvador Rivas Jr. Spray Park, 12480 Pebble Hills Dr.

The spray park projects are part of the City of El Paso’s commitment to enhance El Paso’s quality of life through recreational, cultural and educational environments.
