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.

Appeals 2011: Planting Camellias and Bays

Appeals 2011: Planting Camellias and Bays

Owen, Jane, Chris and Annie ready to plant (by Colin Keates)

Funds generously provided by members of the Friends purchased a number of Camellias and Bays to replace the invasive Rhododendron Pontincum which is being systematically removed from the Woodland Gardens.

These were successfully planted on 19th January, as witnessed by a number of Friends, they are located in the Water House Woodland Gardens at the far side of Witches Pond and are creating an impressive avenue.

Chris Nickerson Head Gardener said “a very big thank you on behalf of the Royal Parks to everyone who donated so generously and made this possible”
