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.

Planting today

The Hampton Wick Association had a large number of bulbs that were surplus to requirements and at risk of being composted so we volunteered to help them out and take them off their hands and plant them in the park.

Under the direction of Sharon Evans head gardener and Shorty the dog, a small but hardy group gathered in subzero temperatures this morning to plant daffodils and narcissi in and around the car park area at the Pheasantry
This will certainly bring some springtime cheer to this area , more planting(shrubs this time) will happen on 10th March meeting at the Information Point at 11.00 am, do join us, tools will be available but gloves and sturdy footwear advisable.
