Terms and Conditions

  1. I understand that after installation, the donated park furnishing becomes the property of the City of Victoria for general public use. I will not remove or damage or tamper with the furnishing or the area immediately surrounding it.

  3. I understand that the park furnishing will remain in place for a 10-year term, beginning on the date of installation. At the end of my term, I will be offered the opportunity to replace the furnishing for an additional 10-year term, at the fee in place at that time.
  4. It is my responsibility to keep my contact information current with the PRFV. If the PRFV is unable to contact me or I choose not to renew my term, the park furnishing will be removed and the site will be made available to others to dedicate.

  7. The City of Victoria reserves the right to relocate or remove the park furnishing if necessary to accommodate park upgrades, maintenance, special events, or other unforeseen events. All reasonable effort will be made to notify me if my donation site is affected. If permanent relocation is required, I will be notified and offered an alternate site.
