The Louisville Water Tower Park | WaterWorks Museum is a historic wedding venue in Louisville, Kentucky. With original architecture, a brass spiral staircase, and spectacular views overlooking the River Side Terrace and Ohio River, this venue is an ideal location for wedding ceremonies, receptions, and elopements, as well as engagement parties and rehearsal dinners.

Please note that to meet the “towering expectations” of the future, Louisville Water Tower Park will undergo major renovations during 2022. The work is scheduled to be complete by early 2023. When it reopens, guests will enjoy a stylish, versatile, and acoustic friendly indoor facility, and they will enjoy a breathtakingly beautiful historic tower, restored to its original elegance.

Follow our social media channels for updates on our progress. Louisville Water Tower Park looks forward to welcoming wedding and event bookings for 2023.


Facilities and Capacity
The 2,200-square-foot Grand Hall features a ceiling rising almost 50 feet above the floor, as well as large, ornate windows that flood the area with natural light. The Riverside Lawn & Terrace is a waterfront event space that boasts beautiful views of the Ohio River. This space allows couples to host an event entirely outdoors, or add an indoor and outdoor seating option for guests. Water Tower Plaza is a unique place to hold a ceremony or reception, as the 1860s structure is one of the oldest standing water towers in the area. Depending on the space used and the occasion, couples may invite up to 300 loved ones to celebrate with them.

    Louisville Water Tower was amazing!

    The Louisville Water Tower was an amazing venue to work with! I booked the venue over a year in advance and consulted with Megan numerous times leading up to the big day. Megan answered all my questions promptly and professionally. Everything went amazing on our wedding day and guests still tell me how beautiful our venue was!
