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.

Members and non-members can receive emails about events in the parks. To subscribe, please enter your email address below.

Chestnut Sunday is the biggest event of the year in Bushy Park. The FBHP always mans a stand providing information and an opportunity for people to join or renew their membership.

This year, we went a step further. Our stalwart FBHP volunteers who staff the information point at the Pheasantry Centre cafe every weekend, joined the Parade down Chestnut Avenue.

As you can see they looked very professional in their FBHP Volunteer uniforms and no doubt helped raise awareness of the work of the Friends.
