Barron Stadium's track is now open for public use. At least four gates that will allow access are three home side entrances and the gate next to the field house on the visitor's side. See schedule below.

The Rome-Floyd Parks and Recreation Authority held a monthly board meeting and after much discussion and consideration of public input, the board unanimously voted to approve a new schedule for public access to Barron Stadium Maddox Track.

Maddox Track will be open to the public Monday through Saturday 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The time period of 2 p.m. – 6 p.m. will be allocated for potential rentals and maintenance. In the event that no practices or maintenance is scheduled, the stadium would remain open the entire time. The public is encouraged to walk in the outside lanes (5-8) and avoid the use of lanes (1-4) at all times. The field at Barron Stadium is closed to all public use. The track will open to the public on Monday, October 31.

It is the position of the Authority Board that the entire complex will continue to be rented for sporting events as a means to offset the total operation of the complex. In light of this position, the stadium complex from time to time and as the opportunity presents itself, will be closed to the public for the aforementioned events. The Authority will, in a timely manner, post such occasions on the RFPRA.com website, display on the stadium board, and provide a text message service for individuals to opt-in to be kept abreast of the track schedule.
