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.

Celebrity Paralysed Marathon Walker to join Chestnut Sunday Procession.

Local charity – the Horse Rangers Association – is proud to host the celebrity paralysed London Marathon walker Claire Lomas.

Claire Lomas will head the cycle part of the procession along Chestnut Avenue escorted by Horse Rangers Association children and our mascot Shetland pony.

Following the procession Claire will take her cycle to the Horse Rangers stand to put it on view to the public.

Claire will then go to the Main Stage at 1.30pm to give a short talk and fund-raise for Spinal Research and the Nicholls Foundation. She will be accompanied by Horse Rangers members.

Claire will be doing the equivalent of a marathon a day on a hand bike as part of her challenge to cycle 400 miles around the UK starting on 22nd April. She arrives at Bushy Park for Chestnut Sunday!
