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.

The Royal Parks Agency have announced that they have appointed a new Chief Executive. Linda Lennon CBE will replace Mark Camley. She is currently Chief Executive of the Parole Board. Prior to this, she was Area Director for the Civil and Family Courts in London and has thirty years of experience of working in the Courts in London and the South East.

She says “I am really looking forward to taking on this exciting and challenging role, and working with the Board, staff and stakeholders to deliver a successful 1012 and a sustainable long-term future for the Parks”

Welcoming the appointment, the Chairman of the Royal Parks Board Apurv Bagri said “I am delighted that Linda will be joining The Royal Parks early in the New Year. Her experience and proven track recordwill be really important to us in what promises to be an exciting year for the Parks with the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic and Paralympic Games”
