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.

Start of Skylark breeding season

The skylark breeding season started in late February.

Notices will go up soon on the Sandy Lane side of the park asking people to keep to the paths and keep their dog on a lead in those two areas. After similar restrictions in previous years, skylark numbers appear to be stable; everyone wants to avoid a return to the mid-2000s when it looked as if the skylark would become extinct in Richmond Park. And if you’re in the area, pause for a moment to listen to the wonderful singing of the skylarks – it’s no wonder it’s such an icon of the British countryside.
