Friends of Cedars Park

The Friends of Cedars Park is a community group for the preservation of this 16th Century Historic Public Park in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire. The group was formed in 2005 and we have been involved in improvements such as a Restoration Project by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and English Heritage to transform the park and restore its Grade II listed structures, and we also help to achieve the park's continued Green Flag Award.

We support local people through regular activities and community projects. You can see the latest updates and events on our Facebook page.

Cedars Park is the original site of Theobalds Palace, a leading example of Prodigy House architecture and later the favourite residence of King James I. As a result, this small local park carries significant historical and national heritage value. This website has been launched to inform about the rich history of Theobalds Palace and provide important information to the community.
