Louisville Water Tower Park

Experience our community destination and a National Historic Landmark all while discovering how water works!

The Park is home to Louisville Water Company’s original Pumping Station and Historic Water Tower. Built in 1858, the structures were first part of the original water system for Louisville and today hosts the WaterWorks Museum, an interpretive experience that explores water’s connection to the community and Louisville Water’s innovations in drinking water.

Louisville Water has completed a full interior preservation / restoration and renovation of the original pumping station, which includes a reception area, retail Alcove, restrooms, and a warming kitchen in the east wing and a permanent installation exhibit, WaterWorks Museum, in the west wing.
