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.

Consultation on preserving the free use of public parks

The Department of Communities and Local Government has issued a consultation document about ParkRun and suggesting that all municipal parks will not be allowed to charge it or other bodies for organised use of parks for leisure pursuits.

The Royal Parks will be responding on their own behalf but are welcoming Friends groups and park users to submit their respective comments to the consultation document.

The consultation document can be found at this web address.
