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

We’ve had another busy year in the Parks.

We’ve had another busy year in the Parks. All of the work supported by the National Heritage Lottery Fund has now been completed. The Water Gardens was opened to the public in October and has proved very popular, although the cascade has been closed down for a while to allow repairs to the lining of the upper pool. The cascade should be running again soon.
