The Helix

The Helix is a brand new public outdoor space between Falkirk and Grangemouth operated by Falkirk Community Trust. The Helix consists of four different zones within 350 hectares of green space and miles of safe, family friendly cycling and walking paths. In the heart of the 4 zones sits Helix Park that opened in September 2013. Helix Park boasts a large lagoon for water sports, a great lawn for events and activities, a splash play area, an extensive network of pathways and coming soon for 2014, the plaza cafe.

Our opening day, Helix Day, was a great success, with over 15,000 local people coming to see their new park. Have a look at some of the images from the day here.

For more information on future events happening at The Helix, keep an eye on our event page and also on The Helix dedicated website.

Work continues on the other zones of the Helix up until spring/summer 2014. Once complete, facilities will also include a new link into the Forth & Clyde Canal and The Kelpies visitor centre. The main attraction at our new visitor centre will be our public art sculptures that you may have seen whilst passing on the M9 or driving through Falkirk/Grangemouth. The Kelpies are sculptures of horses heads, designed by the renowned Andy Scott and inspired by the area's rich equine history. Standing at an impressive 30 meters and weighing over 300 tones, they will be completed by late 2013 with the visitor centre following in 2014. For more information on The Kelpies and project progression, please visit The Helix website.
