Well, MDing is not on the prohibited list here, so I guess it's OK

In metro Atlanta most school sport fields have signs like that and the chain link fences are usually lock tight when not in use. So I pretty much assume they don't want anyone on the fields for any reason except the school sport teams. One of the main reason this has come about is the vast increase of illegal immigrants over using these fields for soccer. At two parks here without locked gates and fences they turned the baseball fields into dust bowls without a blade of grass left. In one large park in Dekalb County, GA they have a black SUV patrolling the park with two men and in white official looking letters it states" Dunwoody,Citizen's Patrol. I guess those two men are super Karen's.

Yes, I'm seeing more and more of the locked-up fences here in TX too. But it varies greatly by which Independent School District you are in. There are dozens of different ISDs in the DFW area, organized roughly by major city/suburb. The trend in the growing districts is to keep things locked up nearly all of the time.
 
Is the OP alright? Where did he go? Did Karen get him?
I didn't take any chances at this particular school/field. Even if I found a gate wide open at a place like this, I probably wouldn't detect there since a Karen or school official would report me. And then a new "No MDing" sign would magically appear there and at every surrounding ball field in about a week 😜

I have a sneaking suspicion of why "school districts vary". And no, it's not because of "Karens" or "officials that happen chance passed-you-by"

And I have a magic solution to avoiding "karen" and school people : Simply go at lower traffic times, when such lookie-lou busy-bodies are not present. PRESTO : problem solved. It is not our job to grovel and please and get "red carpets rolled out for us" by them, is it ? Sort of like nose picking : You don't "need someone's permission", nor is it illegal. BUT FOR PETE SAKES : You opt for discreet timing so as not to offend the squeamish, right ? Ok, then SO TOO IS IT for md'ing !! :shrug: :roll:

That's why most of my public property "park like" hunting is done at night. Plus, it's much more peaceful.

The fairgrounds that I've mentioned before, that had about 10" deep of the turf removed, is a good example. It dates back to around 1900, and when they did that construction, they put up a tall chain link fence around the site. There was no way I was going to let an opportunity like that pass me by. It's public property, so I dressed in all black, went there at night, and climbed that fence. I ended up hunting it about 3 times. Got over 30 silvers and about a dozen LC's :)

Side note: Although that site is public property, most cities have a bylaw in which public property can be temporarily deemed as pseudo "private" property (this would be the case with my fairgrounds example). It doesn't mean someone would get charged with trespassing if caught on such grounds. Rather, they would be asked to leave. If they returned after being warned, then they would be charged with trespassing.
 
Geez, always have to throw in a smart comment, what is your problem? How is your gum chewing ?
too_ And for the ones who liked it, sorry for you.
too_
Whew! Dodged a too pointer bullet by giving Tom's comment a "HA-HA" emoji, instead of a "Like" emoji :)

Don't chew gum, what a stupid rule, or is that the point? Answer the absurdity of some town rules by pointing out the absurdity another way. Sorry, I thought it was funny, Loved it. You gotta laungh at the gov and Karen's to keep from crying.
No poke at you my fellow friendly detectorist. Keep swinging and digging Too.
