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.

Members and non-members can receive emails about events in the parks. To subscribe, please enter your email address below.

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.

Latest report

On Saturday 3rd September, The Head Gardener of the Woodland Gardens, Chris Nickerson led 45 of us on a guided tour of the work he has done and is continuing to do in both the gardens.

We met at the Welcome Centre as usual and a few steps later were at the bank which the Friends planted two years ago with 450 pachysandra terminalis (Japanese spurge) and vinca minor (Periwinkle)…
