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,
play trail,
Cedars Nature Centre,
an arboretum and
a conservation area.


The park covers over 19 acres and was awarded Green Flag status 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.
