Conaty Park is a baseball venue in Smithfield, Rhode Island, United States. It is home to the Bryant Bulldogs baseball team of the NCAA Division I Northeast Conference. The facility was opened in 2000[1] and has a capacity of 500 spectators.[2][3] It features an electronic scoreboard, bullpens, and dugouts. In 2008, batting cages were added adjacent to the field. Also, the infield has recently been renovated.[1]

Formerly known as the Bryant Baseball Complex, the facility was rededicated as Conaty Park on April 28, 2012, prior to a game against Fairleigh Dickinson. It is named for Bryant alumnus Bill Conaty. Conaty is a published author and former business executive.[4][5]

In 2004, the facility hosted the NCAA Division II Baseball Northeast Regional, which Bryant won.[1]
