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, play maze, ponds, pets' corner, play trail, an arboretum and a conservation area. The park covers over 19 acres and was awarded Green Flag status again in 2015.
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.
The Junior Rangers is an assisted play scheme and parents/guardians are required to aid the children. The Ranger leaders are all volunteers and have no funding.
To keep the scheme accessible there is no charge, but Junior Rangers will accept a voluntary donation of £15 for all seven sessions. All donations will only be used towards the cost of materials.
