Is metal detecting allowed in the parks?
We have no rules against metal detecting in our general parks. However, we do not want people digging with shovels. Methods of investigation should be done with small spade type instruments and if turf is lifted out of place, it should be pressed back into place and stepped on to make it firm.

If we were to see someone going beyond what we deem acceptable, we would make contact with them and ask them to stop. If they continue or we see them in similar actions again, we would contact KPD.
