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.

Bushy Park wildlife incident

Bushy Park wildlife incident

parakeet

An injured parakeet was brought into the Information Point by a family who found it somewhere around the Hampton Court end of the Park. Their young son was desperate to try to save it so they walked it over to us. The Information Point volunteers called the on duty Wildlife Officer who arrived to take charge. There is some doubt as to whether the parakeet would have survived the ordeal but quite an event for the young family who brought it in – and indeed for the IP volunteers. This is a first, as in all the years that the Information Point has been open at the Pheasantry Welcome Centre, there has not been an injured animal or bird brought in, which is good news.
