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.

Latest report

Did you know that the National Physical Laboratory uses sound to measure the crunchiness of biscuits and is also responsible for ensuring that all lottery balls have exactly the same weight and measurements?

We found out these facts and a great deal more about the NPL in an informative talk by Fiona Auty on 24th November last year.
