Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

2012 Appeal - Stud Farm Horticultural Nursery - in Home Park

We visited this site last March on one of our organised walks and were very impressed with this project which enables people with learning disabilities to learn how to grow plants, do woodwork and gain qualifications or work-based skills.

They organise regular open days where they sell their products and welcome members of the public to come and explore this fascinating site. They also undertake woodwork restoration for Hampton Court Palace. It offers a supportive, friendly environment where new skills can be acquired.

Stud Nursery has service users attending with physical and multiple learning disabilities, for these service users their time at the Nursery is limited as at present they cannot offer changing facilities for personal care.

A portakabin/disabled portaloo facility would greatly enhance the stimulating opportunities they currently enjoy for a limited period of the day by extending the time that they are able to spend at the Nursery.

Why we need more Friends

With more members our voice is stronger when we campaign to protect the Parks, and with more subscription income we can do more to provide information and education about the Parks, their wildlife and their history.

Join us today!
