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.

Keep Up-to-date

Members and non-members can receive emails about events in the parks. To subscribe, please enter your email address below.

THE ROYAL PARKS MOVEMENT STRATEGY SURVEY

In early summer, Royal Parks asked the public for feedback through a survey around the development of their Movement Strategy. They have now published the results from the nearly 7,000 individual submissions received.

Highlights include:

85% of respondents agree that conserving and enhancing the parks’ special qualities should be a top priority

73% believe that walking should be prioritised over other modes of transport in the parks

79% agree that The Royal Parks should actively encourage and promote sustainable modes of transport such as walking, cycling and public transport as ways of getting to the parks

78% agree that park roads should not be used as commuter routes for cars

The aim is to share the draft Movement Strategy for public comment in the New Year.

Follow this link to see the detailed engagement findings.

Why we need more Friends

With more members our voice is stronger when we campaign to protect the Parks, and with more subscription income we can do more to provide information and education about the Parks, their wildlife and their history.
