Metal Detector Permits

Metal Detector Permits

If you like to search for buried treasure in the parks (or maybe dig up some spare change), you must first obtain a metal detecting permit from the Customer Service Office. In addition to the permit, you will receive tips on digging and replacing the hole, as well as regulations regarding the use of metal detectors in the parks.

Permit Fee: $10

Please note metal detecting is prohibited at: Aldeen Golf Course, Atwood Park, Beattie Park, Elliot Golf Course, Ekberg-Pine Park, Ingersoll Golf Course, Manor Park, Sandy Hollow Golf Course, Sinnissippi Golf Courses, Sportscore One, Sportscore Two, and RPD leased property such as Alpine Hills Adventure Park, Harlem Community Center Sports Complex, and Standfield Beach.
