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.

The Friends bid a fond farewell to Head Gardener Chris Nickerson

The Friends bid a fond farewell to Head Gardener Chris Nickerson

Planting team photo

On Saturday a small hardy group of Friends successfully planted over 1000 daffodils in a newly created bed (post Rhododendron Ponitcum removal) in the Pheasantry Woodlands.

It would be the last working session organised by Chris Nickerson as he will be retiring at the end of the month.
Chris has been in charge of the Woodland Gardens for almost 8 years and during that time we have all been fortunate to experience the fruits of his vision, his plans going forward will of course benefit future generations. He will leave an important legacy , we wish him a very happy, well deserved retirement.
