EL PASO, Texas – El Paso officials have now opened the third of four city-operated water parks for the summer.
The Mayan-themed Lost Kingdom water park, which occupies five acres at 6001 Hughey — adjacent to the Ross Middle School baseball field in central El Paso, officially opened to the public at 11 a.m. on Sunday, June 20.
It follows the first two water park openings, Camp Cohen and Oasis, which launched the last weekend in May and the first weekend in June respectively. Both parks were greeted with big opening crowd turnouts.
"Our community has embraced this amenity, which could not have come at a better time with record breaking heat,” said El Paso City Manager Tommy Gonzalez.
Lost Kingdom will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and features a leisure pool, lap pool, kiddie pool, slides, water playground, lazy river, and climbing wall - along with cabanas and a cafe.
The city's fourth and final water park, Chapoteo, will be opening at a later date not yet announced.
