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.

Notice of Bushy Park Gate Closures

Resurfacing works

From Monday 11th July the Teddington Gate vehicle entrance to Bushy Park will be closed for approximately 5 days so that much needed resurfacing works can take place on the entrance threshold.

The following week from Monday 18th July the Hampton Court Gate will be closed to traffic for approximately 5 days, again so that repairs to the entrance threshold can take place there too.

These works will only prevent through traffic while access to the park for park visitors will be maintained. No other gates will be affected and will be open as normal.
