Boo to no splashing around, especially this weekend with record high triple digit heat about to hit our region.

The new Metro Verde Splash pad has been shut down just after two weeks of opening. So this weekend if our plans included taking the kids to the newest place in Las Cruces to cool off, you're going to have to scratch that off the list.

City staff posted signs around the splash pad stating that the facility would be closed until further notice. The facility was designed to handle about 40 people per day, but it's been full from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. each day the park hours since it opened. This has caused some of the equipment to be worn out and some things had been broken, The sign also stated that the facility would be closed until further notice. We will update any information regarding the reopening here.
