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

A talk by Ray Brodie, Bushy Park Manager 25th February 2011

Ray reminded us that Bushy Park is an important sanctuary for wildlife. A full ecology report started in 2004 is ongoing and has discovered a rare species of beetle not seen for 150 years. Last year another 5 red book beetle species were recorded. Also, the importance of the red and fallow deer to the ecology of the Park cannot be underestimated.
