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.

Oak Processionary Moth

You may have witnessed some spraying of trees in the park, this is being done as part of TRP’s programme to help control Oak Processionary Moth, the invasive non-native insect pest, the caterpillars of which may give people skin rashes, eye irritation and sometimes breathing problems. The product used is classed as non-hazardous under EU Regulations and is also used by The Forestry Commission across the outbreak zone and in affected urban areas in Holland, Belgium and Germany.

Volunteers will also be starting to look for nests and when identified they will be removed – so you might see people in white overalls (not unlike like space men)using cherry pickers . If you think you spot any moths or nests please contact the Park Office at the Stockyard on 020 8979 1586 .
