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.

June 2009

By Pieter Morpurgo

Now that the Diana pond is empty, it is possible to walk across the dried pond to the base of the statue, and see in some detail the figures and the stonework. Diana herself will be removed shortly for cleaning and restoration. She is valued at £10m, so she will be handled very carefully. The other eight figures will be cleaned as well Some of the stonework is in a very fragile state and stone masons will soon be working on site to replace the stones which have deteriorated too badly. The next stage of the works is due to start at the end of June.

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!
