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.

Park Rangers

The newly recruited 27 Voluntary Community Rangers (VCRs) have had their first training session, and it was a huge success. A great bunch of enthusiastic, positive people who are very excited to be a part of the trial VCR service and to get out in the Park. The session included an introduction to the service, the organisation, the Park and some of the key topics that they will encounter, and some good discussions and thoughts were shared. Further training will take place this coming week-end, with the involvement of the Friends of Richmond and of Bushy Park, and you may see the VCRs out in the Park during March with the full trial at Easter in mid-April. Recruitment will start after Easter for the second tranche of volunteers to be deployed in the early summer, so if you missed out the first time please apply again.
