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.

Planting 1,000 bulbs in Bushy Park

The Bulb Planting Brigade

Annie Murrary writes: We were successful in our application for 1,000 free bulbs donated by Taylors Bulbs of Holbeach, through the Metropolitan Public Gardens Association. We were given 500 snowdrops and 500 narcissi to plant in Bushy Park.

It only remained to plant them. The first date was abandoned due to rock hard conditions but luckily today it was cold but wet.

We planted 750 narcissi and 250 snowdrops in Birch Glade.

Many hands make light work and the mission was accomplished with relative ease.

A big thank you to all who turned up to help.

We just hope the squirrels weren’t watching!
