Park Lane, Cheshunt EN7 6QD
This large area of grassland and woodland forms the green
'heart' of the Borough. The park has a rich history and was
the subject of a 'Time Team' investigation in 2001 in which they
uncovered part of Ermine Street, the Roman Road from London. The
majority of the site is managed as wildflower meadow with hay cut
once a year.
Broxbourne Council has recently won Heritage Lottery funding to
further improve the park. The park is situated next to an 18-hole
golf course; Cheshunt Park Golf Club.
The park covers 235 acres and facilities include car parking,
picnic tables, a play area, easy access path, toilets and café in
the clubhouse, and community events – the largest of which is an
annual firework display for Bonfire Night which attracts
nearly 10,000 people.

Health Walks at Cheshunt Park
A new health walking initiative has started at Cheshunt Park.
Health walks are short, regular walks, focussing on the health
benefits of outdoor walking.
The programme is co-ordinated by the Borough Council and
supported by the Countryside Management Service with the objective
of helping people to get outdoors and be more active.
The health walks have a regular timetable which
follows routes of varying lengths in the park and surrounding
areas. The routes are graded so walkers will have an idea of
what to expect and can choose walks to suit their own needs.
The walks were launched in spring 2009 and we are now looking
for additional volunteers to help lead them. Volunteers will
receive free, certified training. For more information go to our
Health Walks page.
The History of
Cheshunt Park is published in a separate leaflet available from
The Golf Centre.
