The outside track at Oak Harbor High School (Rocket Stadium) is open from dawn to dusk, 365 days a year, for community use.  People need to enter at the turn styles, which are always open.   There are a few occasions when the track is closed for community use during athletic events such as track meets.  We are thankful for the great track we have, and we are pleased when we see community members using the track, and hope that it continues.
