    I'm in Des Plaines. Need new hunting grounds. Maybe we can get a few of us out to hunt.

    Washington Park - Wrong and Additional Info

I've had some luck at Site A in the Palos Forest preserve. Was out there yesterday (Wed. 11-29-06) with a friend, and then the skies opened on us. Long walk back to the cars in the rain.

    I worked as a Chicago Police Sergeant for twenty years and Washington Park was in my area of responsibility. I and my friends have also detected there as well as many others I have seen detecting there. Washington Park is not what I could call gang banger terroritory to any to any degree that I would be afraid to go there. Washington park is adjacent to the campus of the University of Chicago, the University of Chicago Hospital, Hyde Park neighborhood, and a Illinois Army National Guard armory. Washington park is frequented by Whites, Blacks, Latinos and other ethnic groups. The gangs in the area have been greatly reduced due to the removal of public housing there in and around. The gangs that are active are most active in the neighborhoods adjacent to some areas of the park. During normal daylight hours its fine to go into the park, at night of course, the temptation arises for gang contact.

    Also, although not well known the strip of land just south the University of Chicago campus (Midway Plaisance) is where the World's Fair: Columbia Exposition (also known as Chicago World's Fair) was held there in 1893. Research this and you find that a lot went on here and also in Washington Park. People find relics from this fair in the park and Plaisance. It would be wise to check ahead because I do not know the rules for metal detecting on the Plaisance. I will try it sometime soon and let you know if I get stopped.

    Can't metal detect Cook County Forest Preserves any more due to new ruling. If you get caught you will be fined even if all you are doing is carrying your detector around.
