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.

A note to all fishermen

Last Sunday John Lock along with another regular visitor to Home Park made a distressing discovery. An Egyptian Geese was in a particularly bad way. On inspection (the goose was very docile and ringed) they found a nylon filament fishing line wound tightly around both legs which they endeavoured to remove. but I am afraid the goose faced an uncertain future. Obviously there are more than enough Egyptian geese moving around the parks now, but this is an uncomfortable reminder of the risks waterbirds run.

I would show photos to illustrate the point but really they are too distressing.
