Advertise in City Parks

The park advertising process is intended to streamline bookings for organizations looking to have signage placed in designated city parks. This program is available to charitable organizations, not for profit organizations, and community groups. The City reserves the right to make exceptions for other groups if the intended message is aimed at the betterment of the community


Applicable Guidelines

  • Signage to be in place for a maximum of two weeks at a time per location (includes set-up/take-down).
  • Signage found to be in place beyond the dates specified on a renter's contract will be charged an additional $35 fee per day until removed, and renter will be unable to book new signage contracts until any outstanding account balances have been paid in full.
  • Signage campaigns are not permitted earlier than six weeks prior to the starting date of the event being advertised.
  • Only one site per quadrant of the city will be considered at any time for the same signage (maximum signs allowable in any two week period would be 4).
  • The City of London reserves the right to decline signage contracts or book signage at a particular location due to repetitive or similar messaging as previous requests, message oversaturation, etc.
  • Organizations are allowed to have one signage campaign running at any time, regardless of location or number of sites booked.
  • Only the locations listed on the online form will be considered for booking (no exceptions).
  • Cancelled contracts will not be eligible for a refund.

This program can only authorize signage in city parks, not on any road allowances.
