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.

'Loose limbed oak tree

Loose limbed oak tree! Have you seen the oak which lost a limb yesterday at Chestnut Sunday? Fortunately not coming down with anyone under it but it must have been quite a crack!

The tree is at the bottom of Upper Lodge Road by the barrier, see photos herewith. On a reassuring note, trees do shed limbs from time to time so it is not of concern to the well-being of the tree.
