THE City of Greater Bendigo will charge a $500 bond for private events in parks and gardens in the next financial year.

The current bond is $79.

The cost of a private event will rise to $115, up from $79.

The council's director of organisation support Marg Allan said the cost of having parks and gardens was considerable and the council needed a contribution from users for maintenance.

The council plans to suspend bond for community groups using parks and gardens for events.  The cost of an event will rise from $79 to $82.
