    Very old park in a very bad neighborhood

    Iím sure this neighborhood park is a virgin park. Iíve been trying to figure out a safe way to get in there. Itís surrounded by homes from the 1900-1940ís. I decided to try this route and if approached Iíll tell them I work for the city and Iím doing tests to put in a FREE pool for the summer. Click image for larger version.

    The vest looks official and will probably get more attention from park employees than from the trouble maker's. Good luck and bring home the silver.

    It was about a year ago I was KO'd at a park in a questionable neighborhood. Never saw it coming, or heard it either because I had head phones on.

    Agreed.

    Always have your head on a swivel... Its a pain in the arse... and takes some away from the "zen" that can come from detecting...

    Which is one reason I always carry and leave one ear off on my headphones. Been walked up on too many times by everything except humans.
    Digging up relics one day at a time. Always looking for fellow detectorist to go out with and enjoy this hobby. Been swinging a coil going on 24 years now this year and loving every minute of it.

    Everyone is just one swing away from finding that one target to change your whole life

    Also I want to thank all my great friends on here for keeping me going through all these years. Couldn't do it without yall.

    Visit my YouTube Channel: Relic Recovery Specialist. Will be adding new videos every day. Thanks for the support everyone.

    I would look at the access to the park and possibly zipping into several locations to do quick hunts to get a feel for the finds in the park and if it might be fairly safe or not. Also, not staying put for too long might keep you off some people's radar and let you get a better plan of attack. I wear the Rattler Headphones for the safety aspect of hearing around me. The idea of being spun and attacked or as deepseekerADS said KO'ed, not appealing. Can you get overhead views and layouts of the park and see if there is areas that might be more prime hunting to try first? If so, go for those, if you can add a buddy or two, do so and hunt in a group. Good Luck and keep us posted!

    Go crack of dawn early and donít go alone, try to team up with someone who can help you, donít rely too much on mace, I donít know too much about your area but here you whip out a can of mace and you will be shot! Good luck!

    Sounds like a plan. I've got an old softball field that's in a bad part of town. Another idea is the old saying," There's security in numbers". Good luck.

    Truth, I know exactly where you are coming from. I have made several posts regarding this matter. If it is a questionable part of town, I would recommend going with a small group if possible. The more eyes and ears, the better. One has to be like an owl these days doing a 360 at about all times unfortunately. There is a part of town that I used to hunt in the early 80's and we did pretty well, however this side of town has grown to be infested with violence and crime. Like Deepseeker ADS posted, a gentleman was hunting here solo about 3 years ago wearing headphones and bent down digging a signal with his back turned when he was rendered unconscious by some Thug's. Luckily, he wasn't killed, but when he awoke he found everything gone including his vehicle that was parked nearby. (So sorry this happened to you Deepseeker). I would love to one day go back to this area, but would be wise to go in with SWAT and heavily packing. It is a shame that times have gotten to be where they are now, but such are the times in which we are now living. I can't see things improving anytime soon until our Lawmakers if you'll excuse me here, (grow a set) and start punishing these Thug's and hoodlums instead of slapping them on their wrist and setting them free to commit crimes on society once again. In short, BE SAFE. Go in pairs and watch one another's back.
