The Royal Parks
Bushy Park Info
Bushy Park is the second largest of London’s Royal Parks (445 hectares)
It is an enclosed park, which seems to be secure, looking at the gate entrance and exit gates which are self closing.
There is vast space for dogs to run around and sniff to their hearts content.
Be wary of:
- Wild deer roam freely in the park, and signs warn you to stay at least 50m away. The birthing season is in May through to July, and their mating season is from September to October. If you choose to walk your dog at these times, you are advised that you do so at your own risk, and that you should walk the outer perimeter and keep your dog on lead.
- Parks and woodland with deer can attract ticks. View this PDF to know what to look for
