Our beautiful Tate Pump House, located along the Platte River Trails at the White Water Park in Casper, is now available for rent as an event venue. With an overall guest capacity of 250, the space beautifully lends itself to wedding receptions, wine tastings, business functions and social celebrations. We’ve added lovely new furniture to the Pump House’s adjoining patio to further enhance the opportunity for guests to enjoy a picturesque setting, unlike any other in the area.
To assist clients in both the planning and the management of their events, we have enlisted the services of an on-site Professional Event Coordinator and Certified Wedding Planner to make certain that all of our customers’ creative visions are brought to life.

We have such a refined dining and event space accommodating large windows indoors, that provide magnificent views of Casper Mountain. I can’t imagine a lovelier space,” says Reynolds Fischer.
With a full-size kitchen on site, Reynolds Fischer has signed eight, innovative Casper chefs to provide visually pleasing, delicious cuisine for her clients.

And, because, I know, it takes numerous factors working together harmoniously to achieve a spectacular event, I will be resolute in my attention to expert and attentive service.”

The Pumphouse is an historic brick structure once used as a pumping station to send water to the town of Midwest and the Salt Creek Field. The Pumphouse was gifted to the Parkway Trust by BP in 2007. The plan is to turn this historic structure into a community gathering place with indoor public restrooms, Parkway trail system office, public plaza, bike/kayak vendor, and a restaurant. This project is the culmination of more than twenty-five years of work by many people in the Casper community.
Many years ago Tom Stroock and Jim Hill, original Parkway Board members, were together at a convention in San Antonio, Texas. After seeing that city’s trail system and the development along the river, both men mused as to how something like this could happen in Casper.
And so began the effort to create a non-profit organization, the Platte River Parkway Trust, with a mission to conserve and develop the North Platte River Corridor. With a grant from the City of Casper, the fledgling Parkway citizen-led Board commissioned a Master Plan that laid out a program for cleaning up, preserving and enhancing the corridor, creating a central thread through the heart of the community and providing recreational opportunities, riparian conservation and urban development, including a riverside restaurant and whitewater park.
The Platte River Parkway, our community’s trail system, follows the North Platte River corridor from Paradise Valley to the East Casper Soccer complex. The Parkway Trust has been working in the Casper community since 1982 with a mission to build a pedestrian trail system and properly conserve and develop the river corridor.
The Tate Pumphouse is centrally located along the Platte River Parkway trail system at the Casper Whitewater Park adjacent to the Newell B. Sargent Foundation Bridge linking the Platte River Commons to the Parkway. Renovation of the Tate Pumphouse will provide indoor public restrooms, Parkway trail system office, outdoor public plaza, bike/kayak vendor, and a restaurant.
The Pumphouse renovation will also foster economic development in the river corridor by creating jobs at the restaurant and bike/kayak vendor, as well as generally improving and enhancing our great community asset—the North Platte River.
The Parkway Trust Board views renovation of the Tate Pumphouse site as an effort to expand the green gateway to downtown Casper that begins at the intersection of Poplar and 1st Street, site of the historic derrick sculpture, traveling west through Amoco Park along the river through the Casper Whitewater Park to the Newell B. Sargent Foundation Bridge and the Tate Pumphouse.
