Wahconah Park is an enclosed ballpark and grandstand on 8 acres of land located at 105 Wahconah Street in the heart of the City.  It is only 374 feet to the center field wall while right center measures 430 feet to accommodate high school football.  Wahconah Park was built before the advent of night baseball, with home plate facing the setting sun, which results in "sun delays" several times a season.  The name Wahconah comes from a Mohican legend of an Indian maiden. 

The first game, Pittsfield vs. Albany NY Gises, was seen by around 500 people on August 9, 1892.  Pittsfield won the game 12-1.  The Park has been host to baseball ever since, from semi-pro teams to affiliated baseball, independent league baseball and now collegiate baseball.  Abandoned by the New York-Penn League at the end of the 2001 season, it is now home to the FCBL's Pittsfield Suns.

It has been used by numerous and groups and organizations for such events ranging from vintage baseball to live concerts featuring such names as Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson and most recently Berkshire Women's Muse Fest featuring Suzanne Vega.  Wahconah Park has been designated as being on the National Historic Register as of June 2005.
