The City of Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department is having a treasure hunt at the outdoor pool on Saturday, September 20th, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Hunters are invited to bring their metal detectors and search the grass areas for treasure. For this onetime event, the City of Oak Ridge will allow hunters to use small utensils to dig; however, no shovels will be allowed and all removed turf must be replaced. Every hunter with a metal detector will be charged $5.00 to hunt.
