Site of historical interest
Site of the former Palace of Theobalds, owned by King James I and the birthplace of King Charles I.
Steeped in history the Palace boasted many famous connections including Queen Elizabeth I who visited Theobalds many times during her reign as the guest of William Cecil, Lord Burghley. King James persuaded Lord Burghley to swap Theobalds for the royal estate of Hatfield, which includes the famous Hatfield House and it became one of his favourite country seats.
Play mound opened in 2013, part of the Heritage Lottery Heritage Lottery and Big Lottery Fund redevelopment project.
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 has a scheduled ancient monument, woodland walks, formal gardens, play maze, ponds, pets' corner, play trail, an arboretum and a conservation area. The park covers over 7.5 hectares and has held Green Flag status for a number of years.
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.
The Park has an active group of local park users known as the Friends of Cedars Park, who act as the eyes and ears of the park manager as well as providing support for Community events. Please click here for more information.
