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.

Latest news from The Royal Parks

This is an exciting time for The Royal Parks as we seek to become a charitable public body. We want to share two recent media interviews with you in case you haven’t seen them. The first is with our new Chairman Loyd Grossman and the other with our Chief Executive Andrew Scattergood. They very much confirm as we have discussed with you our plans and ambitions for the new organisation.

You can view Loyd’s interview here.

You can view Andrew’s interview here.

Please note that at the end of Andrew’s interview the interviewer comments that the new organisation will be The Royal Parks Foundation Trust. The working assumption as we move forward is that we will retain the name The Royal Parks.
