Cedars Park has a longstanding relationship with Waltham, Massachusetts, United States.
The town of Waltham, US was established in 1634 by settlers from Waltham Cross, England.
In 1930, Joseph B Franklin Esq, the Chairman of Cheshunt Urban District Council (covering Waltham Cross), visited the American Waltham for an early celebration of the tercentenary of the town's founding. He was gifted an Amur cork tree, which was planted in Cedars Park on his return home.
This was followed up in 1941 with additional gifts from America to England of a mobile canteen worth $1500 ($21,000 today) to the (at the time) joint towns of Waltham Cross and Waltham Abbey. The current location and condition of the mobile canteen are unknown.
After the tree died from storm damage, the American Waltham kindly donated a new one in August 1980, which later died.
A new tree was planted in recent years, but unfortunately it was severely ring-barked in 2019 (likely by muntjacs) and, although a mud plaster successfully extended its life, it died in 2020.
