The kids may be back in school but that doesn't mean the weather has changed enough to not need a splash around to cool off. The City of El Paso's Parks and Recreation Department took to Twitter Friday afternoon to announce that the Lower Valley splash pad is going to be closed until further notice. The only thing they didn't tweet out was why or give an estimated length of time it would be unavailable to the public.

I reached out to Rick Isias with the Parks and Recreation Department and he sent me this statement:

"The spray park portion of the park has been closed until further notice. Parks tells me it’s a maintenance issue that has to do with a certain part that keeps the spray park activated. Parks is working to replace the part and get the spray park running as soon as possible. No specific time frame was given but I’m told it won’t be too long. In the meantime, neighborhood residents can visit the spray park at Pavo real which isn’t too far from Hidden Valley. The other spray parks around town are also an option."
