EL PASO, Texas – As many El Paso area school kids are headed back to the classrooms, officials announced they are reducing hours at city-owned water parks and county-operated swimming pools.

With the earlier start to the school year, city and county leaders believe there will be a reduced demand among families for water recreation.

As of Aug. 2, City of El Paso water parks will limit the weekly hours of each park - with all four parks still operating on the weekends, while all El Paso County pools will only be open Saturdays and Sundays with two swim sessions.

Below are a list of the water parks and swimming pools with their updated days and hours of operation...
