Pump House Park
Historically, these ponds functioned as settling basins to help clean drinking water. Over time, park visitors were able to enjoy this area for its recreation. Amenities included a bathhouse, band shell, and picnic groves. Park visitors used these ponds throughout the year as fishing holes, skating rinks, and scenic backdrops for picnics. Over 100 years later, Waterworks Recreation Area remains a favorite gathering spot for many picnickers, beachgoers, and anglers.

Did you know?
An oval wooden structure that served as a band shell once sat in this area.

The Bathhouse, once located on the beach, was constructed in 1923 to provide visitors with a comfortable place to change and store their belongings. It remained in use until the 1950's.

The Three Cabins sitting on the shore of the pond to your right were built in 1935 to provide shelters for summer picnickers and warm fireplaces for winter skaters.
