Public Works


The Village of Oak Harbor boasts several parks that offer many different levels of recreation.  Veterans Memorial Park, 300 Finke Road, is our premier park and consists of many open air activities.  The facilities include four baseball/softball diamonds, two full size basketball courts, a skate park, batting cage and two sand volleyball courts.  It also hosts a "tot-lot" for pre-school aged children, as well as two open-air shelter houses.  An Oak tree grove serves a memorial to those individuals that have served as Mayor of the Village.  A 0.6 mile concrete, ADA accessible walking path that encompasses the park was installed in 2021.  There is also a sidewalk that serves as a connection between the Red Hawk Run/Gordon Estates subdivisions and the central area of the Village without traversing State Route 163.

Adolphus Kraemer Park, 125 N. Church Street, is a "public square" style park.  The property formerly hosted the Town Hall, opera theatre and jail.  It currently hosts a log cabin that is home to Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and many educational functions held by the Oak Harbor Log Cabin Committee.  Summer concert series music programs are held here on Sunday evenings throughout the summer. 

The Oak Harbor station Interurban Overlook and Hand Powered Board Launch is located at the south end of Church Street along the Portage River.  This ADA accessible facility includes an overlook with seating for fishing, reading or merely enjoying the surreal views of various wildlife along the banks of the Portage River.  Floating docks are also available for hand-powered watercraft.

Flat Iron Park is located on the west end of the Village, at the intersection of Water, Main, and Toussaint Streets.  The park gets its name from its shape.  The park serves as well-known county landmark offering a monument to the remembrance of World War I veterans dedicated in 1919.  The park was re-dedicated  in 1986 to veterans of all wars and conflicts.  The park also hosts a gazebo built in 1976 "by the community, for the community" that is sight for weddings, picnics, organization meetings and a live manger scene at Christmas.
