City Solicits Water Park for Northeast El Paso

The City of El Paso is now seeking bids for a year-round water/adventure park to be built in Northeast El Paso. It would like a developer to construct and manage the park on 39 acres of land surrounding Cohen Stadium, which sits unused since the El Paso Diablos moved out.

Officials stated in the past that a water park company approached the City about possibly building an attraction on the land, but nothing was every made official. It's unclear if this is the next step in that same process, or if the City now has no committed developers and is looking for a new partner. According to the City's website, bids are due by September 2, 2014.

Wet 'N' Wild Waterworld in Anthony, Texas, has issued a press release indicating it has plans to expand its existing park and has even purchased land surrounding the location for that purpose and was caught off guard by the City's request for proposals. Its press release regarding this latest development can be found at the Wet 'N' Wild website.

Read the full story at the El Paso Times website and the KVIA website.

  1. What happened to the water park? I thought they were going to build one?....oh that's right the North East representative shot that idea down because he's an incompetent a-hole!!! Now they're going to build a dumb splash pad. No wonder we never have tourists to El Paso, this city sucks!!!

  2. No the City shot it down, we had two offers from Water Parks to build here, but Wet N Wild screamed, and well the city killed the project.
