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.

Trees in Bushy Park

Yes it’s that time of year, the park is a glow with a fabulous range of colours, but please let’s remember too that the various seeds and nuts that the trees and shrubs are depositing will sustain the wild animals throughout the winter.

Therefore please limit what you take (in fact the park regulations say , take nothing) perhaps just enough for a conker game or two.

I personally endorse the sign that I recently saw in Yorkshire.
