Perhaps this sentence, in your citation of text, is to-your-point ?

Such that, sure, let's be honest: the "prime purpose" of the school grounds is for school kids to play at. NOT for a geek to metal detect on. Have I understood your point here ?

If so, then when it comes to parks of-any-stripe, where we both agree md'ing is a non-issue, then ask yourself : What is the purpose of a soccer field ? FOR SOCCER, not md'ing. What is the purpose of a picnic grounds ? FOR PICNICS, not md'ing. What is the purpose of a swimming beach ? FOR SWIMMING, not md'ing. What is the purpose of a campground ? FOR CAMPING, not md'ing. And so forth.

See ? In fact, I can't think of a single speck of ground, across the entire usa, where any stretch of field was labeled a "metal detecting field" (such that, ONLY THEN can you then metal detect it ). See ?
