Eden Park Standpipe is an ornate historic standpipe standing on the high ground of Eden Park in Cincinnati, Ohio. The standpipe is a form of water tower common the late 19th century. It was listed in the National Register on March 3, 1980.
The standpipe, completed in 1894 by the firm of Cincinnati architect Samuel Hannaford, stands at 172 feet (52 m) tall. It was built to provide sufficient water pressure for the neighborhood of Walnut Hills, Cincinnati. The standpipe held water pumped into it from the Ohio River by means of the neighboring Eden Park Station No. 7. Water flowed out of it into two 24-inch (610 mm) and one 36-inch (910 mm) mains. However, as the city grew ever outward and newer water towers were built, the old standpipe was rendered obsolete and it was discontinued from service in 1916. A public observation deck that once operated is no longer accessible to visitors.
