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.

Plans to redevelop the Pheasantry Centre

Rosemary MacColl, Vice Chair of the FBHP, writes: As far as the redevelopment plan of the Pheasantry Welcome Centre is concerned, subject to ECSI obtaining planning permission which is due at the end of December, they are looking to commence the works on 7th January.

The FBHP committee is in full support of these plans as we feel that the finished building and additional improvements to the picnic area, will result in a considerably more enjoyable space for visitors without encroaching further into the Woodland Gardens.

The Information Point will be situated at the front of the building when approached from the car park so it will be the first thing that visitors see as they arrive. We will have our own space with a front window which will be covered by a new roof, and we will also have dedicated outside space to the side, where the bike park is currently, so when the weather is nice, we can put out tables and chairs. The Information Point will be equipped with new furniture which will be designed to make it a good space for us to work in and, I trust, attractive to visitors.
