Greensburg, PA – Carson’s Catering, the premier catering and event planning company in Westmoreland County, is pleased to announce the opening of Waterworks, Greensburg’s newest wedding and banquet facility.

The Waterworks complex includes several event areas, including a banquet room, meeting room, and private party room, as well as an on-site restaurant. Tim and Kristine Carson, the new owners of Waterworks Event Center, purchased this former water treatment plant and created Westmoreland County’s most beautiful banquet and gathering space.

The Waterworks complex draws guests for:

  • Weddings. Waterworks weddings and receptions are beautiful, elegant affairs that are tailored to the vision of the bride and groom. The Cascade banquet room, sitting up to 220 people, boasts cathedral-style ceilings, exposed wooden beams, chandeliers, and large windows that invite views of an outdoor courtyard. Waterworks’ on-site catering with custom menus will deliver an unforgettable dining experience for couples and their guests as they celebrate their wedding day. An outdoor ceremony space and courtyard is also available. The event staff offers full service wedding coordination that includes set-up, decorating and dining.
  • Event Spaces. In addition to the Cascade banquet room, Waterworks provides event spaces for special occasions, business events, and private parties. The Deep End has a full bar and is perfect for events up to 60 people, while the Creekside conference room offers a relaxed space for meetings.
  • The Pumphouse Pub. This restaurant and lounge launched a new menu in June that features a large selection of dinners, Greensburg’s best sandwiches, and a soup and salad bar. There’s outdoor dining, live music, DJs, and dancing, and guests can relax by playing a game of pool or darts while enjoying time with friends.


The wedding, banquet, and all-occasion menus include favorites for both buffets and sit-down meals.

“Waterworks shows just how committed we are to the Westmoreland Country community. This is a banquet center that everyone can enjoy. Since we’ve opened our doors, we’ve welcomed dozens of weddings, receptions, and parties. Not only is this space picture perfect, the food is fabulous –it’s exactly what everyone expects from Carson’s Catering,” said Tim Carson, CEO of Waterworks and Carson’s Catering.

“Tim and I wanted to create an elegant, upscale wedding venue, but we also planned a comfortable place for events and dining. The Pumphouse Pub Restaurant and lounge has become a Greensburg favorite. It features a new menu of favorites, offers entertainment, and is also kid-friendly. This is the kind of venue that everyone visits to enjoy a great meal and spend time with friends and family,” said Kristine Carson, President of Waterworks and Carson’s Catering.

Waterworks’ new, fully responsive website is now live. Designed by Pittsburgh digital media firm Higher Images, it showcases the wedding venue, includes menu options for all events, and features an availability calendar so users can look for open dates.
