I don't think your change makes it sufficiently clear.  It reads like it is
always wrong to have "Foo Park Bandstand" for a bandstand in
Foo Park, even if the actual name on a plaque on the thing
says it is "Foo Park Bandstand."

Some people don't take the time to think through the logic.  Or
read into a sentence what they want to see there.  So I think
a judicious "unless it actually is the name" would not go amiss.
