SFGate’s Culture Editor Dan Gentile joins The Mark Thompson Show Tuesday morning to share ‘The Secret’.

Gentile explains that after 39 years, treasure hunters are still scouring Golden Gate Park for hidden treasure. He shares how you can join in on the fun and gain a permit to search for yourself.

“There’s so much to be serious about in our city and in life. And frankly there’s a lot of serious issues in our parks system,” says Rec and Park general manager Phil Ginsburg. “But I think it’s important to embrace whimsy, embrace the quirky. To not take ourselves so serious.”
