New to Detecting. Cedar Park TX

I am new to Metal Detecting. Does anyone know of any places in the Cedar Park Tx area that we are allowed to detect. I have been trying to read up on the different laws and such, and some places seem a bit hazy to me on if we are allowed. For instance playgrounds. Do you need to get permission to detect there. I am not looking to get rich or anything.I just find it a very calming hobby. Plus it allows me to clean up the community. I was testing the detector at a local school ( which now reading not sure if I am allowed) and found 8 inch piece of metal buried shallow into the ground near a slide. It felt good to remove that hazard.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Its an entry level detector. the Bounty Hunter Time Ranger. I thought I would dip my toes into the hobby first, before I go all in.

I hope I can find the answers, I really am not looking to break any Laws.

A safe bet would be just ask. My favorite spot is old homes. Many times the people living in the home would have an interest in the hobby. I just knock on the door and hand them my card. (A professional business type card with all your info on it is a great thing to have. It shows them you not trying to hide anything)
I have several detectors so I usually have a back-up in the car I offer to let them use and show them how it works. Most times, if they do accept, they don't hunt very long, but are alway appreciative.
I always show them the goodies I've found. You never know what they may have lost in the yard that they may not even remember.
