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.

Olympic Trial Event

Olympic Trial Event

On Sunday 14th August there will be a full practice run of the Olympic cycle road race.

It will leave the mall and will go through Bushy Park from the Teddington Gate to the Hampton Court Gate.

It will be run at exactly the same time as the event next year. It will start in The Mall at 9.00 a.m. and will be going through Bushy at 9.30. It will be a free event.

Local roads will be closed for a while, and re-opened once the cyclists and all their back up cars and trucks have gone through. There will be barriers along Chestnut Avenue, but no other structures.
