Wet ‘N’ Wild Waterworld Receives Community Outreach Award

The Borderland’s first and only water park was honored at a national gathering of aquatics professionals.

Aquatics International, a magazine and website for the commercial swimming pool and waterpark industry, named Wet ‘N’ Wild Waterworld the recipient of the  2015 Community Outreach Award.

Officials with Wet ‘N’ Wild Waterworld say they were “thrilled” to accept the award at the Aquatics International Annual Breakfast, in San Diego, California.

The park received the award for its efforts in reaching out to the Borderland community, with programs like The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson (a free annual event promoting swimming and water safety), Feed them For a Week (a program that stocks the pantries of families during the Christmas season), the Lifeguard Olympics (where area lifeguards compete) and the annual Summer Car Show and Beach Party put on by the Anthony Police Department to fund its Food Pantry.

“We are really grateful for this award,” says Chandra Edwards-Cottingham, General Manager of Wet ‘N’ Wild, “and grateful for all the opportunities we have to give back to the community.”

Edwards-Cottingham believes that community partnerships are vital to a healthy business.

“We highly value our relationships with the groups who make the good works possible, including The Drowning Prevention Coalition of El Paso and Christian Castle Lifeguard Olympics, The City of El Paso Parks and Recreation, The Anthony Texas Police Department, The Anthony ISD Summer Food Program, and Prices Creameries (which sponsors life jackets used in the park), to name a few,” she added

Edwards-Cottingham hopes to continue expanding community outreach programs each year, and encourages anyone with an idea for a program or event to contact her. “When someone from the community approaches us, we can usually find a way to work with them. We give away thousands of tickets a year and are serious about using the waterpark as a platform to add value to the amazing people in our Borderland community.”
