I was there last week.. it was painfully slow. 3 different parks not much a few coins. What shocked me was the depth I was reading coins. Ohio soil is much looser than Tennessee clay.

Even in old parks I think they have all been beat to death over the years.

Yeah when you pull a quarter at 8 inches and read 1978 for the date, you sort of feel screwed if you are hoping for some oldies...

I've detected that park before. Used to be a civil war encampment/training area back in the day.
I didn't find much either.

Keep an eye on that park , if they ever do any construction or scrape the ground there are new opportunities.
