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.

Floating Pennywort: How we are managing it on the Thames

Message from Tina Donaldson, Community Resilience Advisor, Asset Performance Team – Lower Thames.

It is currently Invasive Species Week, organised by the Non Native Species Secretariat of which Defra is a member. With this in mind, I wanted to let you know what we are doing about managing Floating Pennywort on the Thames. Floating Pennywort is an invasive species of aquatic plant that can spread very quickly and cause serious problems in our rivers.

If you have any questions or concerns about floating pennywort or other invasive species in the local area please contact the Environment Agency.
