In loving memory of Malcolm Ehrhardt, a fund has been created –Malcolm's Hedge Fund – to continue the ongoing care and maintenance of the City Park hedges that Malcolm meticulously pruned and cared for, for nearly twenty years. In addition an installation of a bench and a plaque will help create a serene and reflective place for his loved ones and our community.

Malcolm was named an honorary member of City Park’s grounds staff in recognition of the years he spent tending the swath of greenery across from his home on City Park Avenue. When he started this volunteer work, he had to run an extension cord across City Park Avenue to power the equipment, Marc Ehrhardt said.

The area he nurtured included the boxwood hedges spelling out CITY PARK. “Being in the park and taking care of the hedges brought him joy,” Marc Ehrhardt said.

All donations are processed through our 501c3 support organization, Friends of City Park.
