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.

Annie assumes the reins

Annie Murray was announced as the new Chair of the Friends of Bushy and Home Parks at the AGM. She takes over from Pieter Morpurgo.

Annie said “ Pieter has done an amazing job over the past 5 years and overseen a lot of major changes in the park particularly during the restoration project. In addition he has helped to successfully veto car parking charges and to fight against planning applications that would be detrimental to the park. Recently he worked particularly closely on the Diana Fountain restoration and the design and implementation of the new finials in the Water gardens”

Pieter continues his involvement with the Friends as President. The Friends have planted four hawthorn trees south of Heron Ponds as a mark of their appreciation of Pieter’s work.
