FOUR teenagers are set to be charged over vandalism to trees and tulip beds at Rosalind Park.
The teens handed themselves into police on Tuesday, following media publicity around the damage.
It’s believed the group of Bendigo men, all aged 18, were alcohol-affected when they destroyed plants and bins in the park early Monday morning.
The City of Greater Bendigo said there was about $6,000 worth of damage to elm trees, flower beds and rubbish bins that needed to be replaced.
Police were reviewing CCTV footage around the park on Tuesday when the teens called to admit to their involvement.
Bendigo Police Inspector Dixon said it was a positive sign that they were proactive.
“We’re really appreciative of that fact that they came forward,” he said.
“We would have identified them eventually with the amount of community information we received but the fact that they came forward is positive. We’ve got to give them credit.
"The last thing I want is for community anger to spill over.”
Two of the 18-year-olds have been questioned and the other two teens will be interviewed Wednesday.
All are expected to be charged on summons with criminal damage.
