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 Friends' Summer Party

Friends enjoyed a lovely afternoon in the historic grounds of Bushy House. For once (of late) the weather was kind and the rain held off.

Bellini’s were savoured in the newly restored Orangery, and later a cream tea was served in the House.

A brain teaser set by Tom Blaney was a stretch for most of us, but a number of members applied themselves resulting in a few of correct answers. The star prize was a beautiful hanging basket crafted by the young people from the Stud Farm Nursery in Home Park.

Music was supplied by Brian Short and a fellow musician. They were a real hit and had everyone singing along in no time – many guests felt it was the best party yet.

A big thank to all those who helped to make the afternoon so successful and to NPL for allowing us access to this wonderful site.
