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.

Walk round the ponds of Bushy Park with Jane Cliff.

This walk will be over some uneven ground and will take approximately 2 hours.

Meet 11.00 am in the Diana Fountain car park near the kiosk.

The walk will follow the route starting with the Boating Pool and the last pond is at Barton’s Cottage. Please feel free to join or leave at any stage. We should enter the Pheasantry Woodland gardens after approximately 50 minutes and continue through to the Water Gardens.

Please see full details here.

Why we need more Friends

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.
