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.

Friends' Summer Party 2013

Friends' Summer Party 2013

Photo by Colin Keates

On Sunday 21st July we welcomed more than 120 guests to the hidden gem that is the Stud Nursery in Home Park. We enjoyed wonderful weather (for a change!) and everyone was able to discover the delights of this site. Brian Short and Peter once again entertained us with their amazing repertoire of music.

The warm weather made us all appreciate the personal taxi service so very kindly provided by James the park warden who ferried people between the car park and the party.

The nursery was delighted that we sold £127.50 worth of plants. We will continue to support the work of the nursery which does such great work with adults with learning disabilities. In Autumn we are planning – with the generous support of the Friends – to help provide an orchard in the grounds.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this occasion so successful and helped raise funds for the Friends.
