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.

Mini Beast Walk, 2nd May

Mini Beast Walk, 2nd May

A group of 8-10 children, parents and Friends had an enjoyable and educational walk in the Pheasantry Woodland gardens led by our ‘expert’ Stuart Cole.

Various mini beasts were found under logs, the bark of trees and in Stuart’s large cloth net which he swept over nettles and other vegetation. Some were placed in pots with magnifying lids so we could have a better look (many thanks to the Field Studies Council for lending the pots) and several children enjoyed catching more insects with Stuart’s net. All mini beasts were returned to their habitat. We also enjoyed identifying trees and water fowl and peering to the top of the Big Cone Pines to see if any large cones remained.

We plan to organise another walk for children in the autumn, information will be on the website and at the Information Point
