Steeped in history, the park was once the site of Theobalds Palace, a favoured residence of James I. Queen Elizabeth I also visited Theobalds many times during her reign. The park was given to the Borough in 1919 and today offers a scheduled ancient monument, woodland walks, formal gardens, a play maze, ponds, play trail, Cedars Nature Centre, an arboretum and a conservation area. The park covers over 19 acres and was awarded Green Flag status again in 2018.
In 2014, Broxbourne Council received a £1.89 million grant from the Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery Parks for People programme, to protect, conserve and improve Cedars Park for the Borough’s residents.
