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.

Why we need more Friends

Latest report

While I was at Isleworth Grammar school, my parents saw an advert to become a cartographer for the War Office. I applied, and was sent to the War Office in Bushy Park. The Americans were there working, producing maps for the RAF. This work was carried out from 1947 on the American base. The Americans were there from 1942 onwards.
