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.

"Autumn" Photo Competition

The new photo competition is on the subject of Autumn in the parks. You may take as your subject anything that captures the “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” as we experience it here in Bushy or Home Park. The judges generally favour pictures that are recognisably taken in the parks.

The closing date for entries is 8th January 2013. For full details on how to enter please click here

For some inspiration, take a look at some of the best entries to previous competitions in our Photo Galleries – click here for the link.
