Welp, El Paso summer has just begun but we’ve already dealt with multiple heat waves, and it seems as if we won’t be getting a break anytime soon!

Triple digit heat is expected to take over the forecast AGAIN this week and because of that, the city of El Paso is trying to prevent any heat-related illnesses for locals, especially for the most vulnerable, senior residents.

The El Paso Office of Emergency Management, in collaboration with the City of El Paso Parks and Recreation Center and the Extreme Weather Task Force, has opened seven cooling centers to help keep residents—especially senior residents—safe from the dangers of the extreme heat.

The Free Cooling Centers Are Located At:

  • Galatzan Rec Center, 650 Wallenberg Dr.
    Veterans Rec Center, 5301 Salem Dr.
    Chamizal Rec Center, 2101 Cypress Ave.
    Gary Del Palacio Rec Center, 3001 Parkwood St.
    Officer David Ortiz Rec Center, 563 North Carolina Dr.
    Valle Bajo Community Center, 7380 Alameda Ave.
    Marty Robbins Rec Center, 11620 Vista del Sol Dr.

The cooling centers are open on the following schedules:

  • Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
    Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
    Sunday from noon to 7 p.m.
