The Helix has transformed 350 hectares of greenspace into an outdoor recreational parkland found between Falkirk and Grangemouth. It includes a lagoon, wetlands, woodlands, trails, outdoor event space, an adventure play zone and splash fountains.
The Helix is home to The Kelpies. Standing 30 metres tall and are the world’s largest equine sculptures towering over the Forth & Clyde canal. Visitors can experience a tour inside The Kelpies and hear all about their origin and inspiration.
A Visitors Centre has recently opened giving visitors an insight into the history of these magnificent sculptures and it has a an exhibition areas, café and gift shop.
The Helix has involved volunteers and the community from its very conception and would like to continue to do so. Now with a new Volunteer Co-ordinator in place The Helix has recently re-launched its volunteer programme.
