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.

Ponds Walk 25 March

Ponds Walk 25 March

Ponds Walk 25 March

On a beautifully sunny Saturday morning about 50 people turned up for the Ponds Walk in Bushy Park. Jane Cliff led the walkers and those who stayed the course over 2 hours and several miles thanked her for leading the way. By then they had visited Boating Pond, Heron Pond, Leg of Mutton Pond, Diana Fountain, Triss’s Pond, Fishers Pond, Waterhouse Pond, River Lodge Pond, the Water Gardens, with Hampton Hill Pond and the Canal Plantation viewed from afar (there were some flagging by now) and finishing at Bartons Pond. The weather could not have been kinder and the ponds were gleaming with a clear blue sky above.

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.
