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.
Members and non-members can receive emails about events in the parks. To subscribe, please enter your email address below.
The Hampton Wick Association (HWA) was formed over 40 years ago originally to oppose proposals to build a flyover from Kingston that would have demolished a large section of the village. Since that fight was won, the Association has gone on supporting the local community by maintaining a watch on local issues that may affect our environment, residents or local businesses.
Richmond AID is a charity of and for disabled people in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
The Hampton Society is primarily concerned with the protection and development of the local environment, both built and natural, and to ensure that the provision of amenities enhances the quality of life for the residents of Hampton.
The Teddington Society was formed in 1973 by a group of local residents whose wish it was to preserve the character of the town and support local community projects. And this remains the aim of the Society today.
The Kingston upon Thames Society exists to promote high standards of planning, conservation and design in the Royal Borough.
With more members our voice is stronger when we campaign to protect the Parks, and with more subscription income we can do more to provide information and education about the Parks, their wildlife and their history.
