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.

Crowds turn out to welcome The Queen, despite the weather

Crowds turn out to welcome The Queen, despite the weather

The Queen at Richmond Park 15 May 2012

On Tuesday 15th May, The Queen, Prince Philip and Princess Alexandra visited Richmond Park as part of the Jubilee tour.

The crowds were welcoming unlike the weather which was truly atrocious, with every kind of rain imaginable.

Annie Murray was presented to Princes Alexandra who takes a keen interest in Bushy Park; indeed, she opened the Water Gardens after their restoration.

The Princess asked to come back to the Water Gardens for a visit in autumn to check on progress.

Apparently the Queen doesn’t mind getting her feet muddy which was just as well!
