Palisades Credit Union Park, formerly Provident Bank Park, is a baseball park in Pomona, New York. It is the home field of the New York Boulders of the independent Frontier League. It opened on June 16, 2011.[1] The stadium is also home to the St. Thomas Aquinas College baseball team (NCAA Division II), who began playing all their home games at the venue in the spring of 2012.[3] The Spartans are the 2014 and 2017 NCAA East Region Champions. Naming rights were purchased by Palisades Credit Union 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.[4] On April 25, 2016, it was announced that the naming rights had been sold to Palisades Federal Credit Union.
