  • Great local ball park. Stand seating is constructed much like old world amphitheaters. If you get too hot, go down to concession area, very cool and a nice breeze even on non windy days. Amazing.
  • Fun and Family friendly... Lots of giveaways too. Not much foul ball protection though
  • Fun inexpensive night watching the Nashua Silver Knights. A great place to take the kids.
  • Home town baseball ambience in a station that's been significantly improved over the years.
  • Best place to watch baseball! Love it here.
