Welcome to Cedars Park
Where history is just a walk in the park
Cedars Park is a public park in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire. The grounds are of historical and national importance, as they once held the significant royal residence of Theobalds Palace. The original land was donated by Admiral Sir Hedworth Meux to the people of Cheshunt by covenant in 1919, and the area was opened as "The Cedars" on 2 July 1921, under the care of the local council, who have since expanded the parkland.
The 19-acre park is located near busy dual carriageways, however it retains a peaceful atmosphere and charming character. The park has received a Green Flag Award every year since 2009. Investments since the early 2010s, including a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, have transformed the park by adding new paths and features, creating new woodland, and providing better information about the rich history of the park.
There is a strong community element at Cedars Park. An active volunteer base support Broxbourne Borough Council in managing the park by helping to keep it tidy, planting flowers, organising public events and carrying out valuable projects.
