We're so lucky in Richmond to have not just Richmond Park but also Bushy Park - a great place for families, cyclists and runners. It's small enough not to get lost in, but walking around you always discover something new - like the Pheasantry Welcome Centre or the water gardens.
I've got to say I LOVE bushy park, I run there, as a family we walk the dog, play and picnic in this beautiful park. The boys play football and cricket. My friends train, teach and do time trials here; it's an inspiring enviroment. additionally we've had "beavers walks" here and I've organised a charity fun run, the staff are great and when we had an emergency last year we were helped very quickly. From tree climbing to lazing on a blanket reading a book it's great fun.
