Make Time: The scenery and views throughout this trail is gorgeous. Make sure you stop, take a moment and drink it in. Enjoy your time outside, in nature and clear your mind.

Head outside to Muiravonside Park and you’ll find the award winning Sculpture Trail. Follow the trail and you will see beautiful views and read about the environment on our interpretation panels next to the sculpture pieces. Each piece is inscribed with an excerpt from a poem from Kenneth Stephen’s book of children’s poetry ‘Imagining Things’ and is suitable for all ages.

Start

The trail starts at the main car park. Navigate round the trail from the metal entrance arch, following the ‘art in the park’ waymarkers. You’ll pass through the orchard and climb up the meadow past the ponds where Great Crested Newts live.

You’ll soon reach the giant teasel sculpture at the top of the meadow. This is a great spot for a selfie! Drop your selfie over to us on Facebook or Twitter using #FitForLifeFalkirk and let us know how your walk is going!

Continue along the trail and take in the amazing view from the owl bench, see if you can spot the owls up in the trees or the bats in the Doocot.

The café is currently closed but the swallows outside there, and the poem in the open barn, mark the end of the trail.

Finish

We hope you enjoyed the trail which is 1.3km long! A great way to achieve your daily exercise and getting out and about this winter. If you would like more information on the NHS recommendations on daily exercise head here
