PITTSFIELD, Mass. (WWLP)– A public meeting is being held to discuss plans for the future of Wahconah Park, a historic baseball stadium in Pittsfield.
The City of Pittsfield’s Wahconah Park Restoration Committee and the design team from S3 Design, an architectural firm in Braintree, will provide an overview of the project and take comments from the public on what they envision for the facility.
