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.

Ray Brodie Returns to Bushy

It has been announced that Ray Brodie is to return to Bushy Park as Park Manager in the spring.

Simon Richards says “For me, I am really pleased that we have managed to get Ray back to where he belongs and you should start to benefit again from having a park manager dedicated to the interests of Bushy Park”

Whilst we welcome Ray back to the park we would like to acknowledge the huge amount of work Simon has done and the various improvements he has implemented over the past two years and the support he has given to the Friends. Simon will return to managing Richmond Park full time.

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!
