WPR desires to provide safe parks and recreational opportunities and is hereby charged with ensuring that individual park patrons and user groups (User) and Inflatables rental companies (Vendor) comply with reasonable standards which promote safety and enjoyment of all WPR facilities. Users and Vendors shall sign a written copy of the policy, agreeing to the terms and conditions set forth. View the Policy here.
