Quotes as sarcasm

At the exit of my local park a glossy new sign has appeared, with a message written in quotes:

“Thankyou for visiting Ealing parks”

It’s not so much the sentiment itself that I mind, but the quotes. It makes it look like they’re being sarcastic—as if it should continue,

dropping your litter all over the place and generally behaving like chavs—“Thankyou very much”.
