I absolutely love Bushy Park, it is such a beautiful place to visit, an oasis of peace and tranquility with the beautiful deer wandering free around the park. We were soen fortunate to spot a white deer nestling in the grass.
In the middle of the park is the Pheasantry Cafe, which offers meals, snacks, icecream and delicious cakes, a very pleasant cafe to sit outside and relax. Parking is available too as well as toilets and a little centre that has various leaflets. Next to the Pheasantry Cafe are the Woodland Gardens which are very pretty with formal displays and we saw parakeets and a swan on the little river that runs through it. The Woodland Gardens are a lovely stroll, not taxing at all and when we were there the Rhododendrons were simply stunning with their beautiful colours
There is also another car parking area with a refreshment trailer by a little stream by the lake and it is one of my favourite places as one can sit in the car and see all the different sorts of ducks including Mandarins and when we were there we also watched parakeets flying in and out of a tree stump, 2 swans and their delightful cygnets who caused great amusement when they decided to take a ride on their Mums back and a moorhen who was very busy building her nest, fascinating to watch.
The only downside to our visit was that we noticed several adults approach the deer at extremely close range, not a wise thing to do and I also saw two children chasing the deer causing them to panic and run amok. Fellow vistors expressed their disgust and quite rightly so
As mentioned earlier I love Bushy Park and I look forward to our visits when we are in the area
