Provident Bank Park is a stadium in Ramapo, New York. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the Rockland Boulders of the independent Can-Am Association. It opened on June 16, 2011, a 3-1 win for the Boulders against the Brockton Rox.[1] The stadium is also home to the St. Thomas Aquinas College baseball team (NCAA DII), who began playing all their home games at the venue in the spring of 2012.[4] Naming rights were purchased by Provident Bank of New York.

In 2012, the project to design and build the stadium received the Ward House Award from the Lower Hudson Valley Branch of the American Society of Civil Engineers.[5]
