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.

Pheasantry Welcome Centre

The Pheasantry Welcome Centre will be opening in 2009. Would you like to volunteer to help?

We will primarily be an information point for visitors, offering a range of free leaflets about what to see and where to go in the park. We may also stock a small selection of postcards and greetings cards. The centre will be very much “work in progress” and will continually add to its information and merchandise.

It will be staffed and run by Volunteers from among the members of the Friends of Bushy & Home Parks. To start with, we plan to open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays.

Latest report

On Saturday 8 June 2019 from 11am to 3pm members of the Friends of Bushy and Home Parks will be at the SHAEF memorial (near SHAEF Gate) and at Teddington Gate to help you envisage the scene 75 years ago when General Dwight D Eisenhower and his staff in Bushy Park were planning the campaign to liberate occupied Europe.
