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.

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


Planting for next year

Planting for next year

Friends help with planting

On 5th November members of the Friends planted over 1000 narcissi bulbs in the Woodland Gardens, directed by Head Gardener Chris and Manager Michael, look out for them next spring.

It is planned to plant more shrubs next year. All welcome.

This is just to let you know that we (on behalf of The Friends) will be planting hawthorn/blackthorn/crab apple, 3 crates each containing 4 whips south of Heron Pond on Monday morning at approximately 10.00 am.
These trees have been funded in part from our donation to the memory of Colin White; further trees are being planted close to Kathy Whites house.

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.

Join us today!
