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.

Planning Application Victory!

News has just come through that the appeal against the council decision to refuse the building application for the Whistle Stop site (the scrappy building at the Hampton Court Gate entrance to Bushy Park) has been turned down, so another success on the planning front for us!

I, together with local residents, have been sending letters and objecting about this site for months – if not years. So persistence and bloody mindedness has prevailed!

No doubt a new application will be sent in at some point, hopefully this time not putting the Park wall in danger of collapse. We will await developments.
