Helix Park

Discover Helix Park, and explore The Great Lawn, Lagoon, Plaza Cafe and the Splash Play Area.

This is the heart of The Helix. It all starts here.

Discover how the land to the west of West Mains Industrial Estate in Falkirk has been transformed into a wonderful urban greenspace.

Within Helix Park you will find the shingle beach surrounding the lagoon, and the lagoon plaza with cafe and splash play area - Jets of water leap from the ground and invite young and old alike to take part.

Helix Park is a 43ha zone of the 350ha that make up The Helix, with high quality pathways connecting to Helix South and Helix North via The Kelpies through the 27km path network; perfect for cycling, walking, running, skating or riding.

Keep tabs on how this major development project is progressing and what will be on offer in this central Scotland location from summer 2013 onwards. 

Get ready for Helix Day, the official opening of Helix Park

The Heart of the Helix Walk &   The Helix Heritage Walk

Both of these walks pass through Helix Park, but with a different focus. Discover the rich history of the area on the Helix Heritage Walk, or take a stroll with a group of walkers keen to explore The Heart of The Helix.

Biodiversity

The Wetlands in Helix Park are home to a diverse mix of marshland birds, including mallards, swans, heron and coot. The deer present in Helix North make their way through this area by swimming across the canal, then walking through the woodlands surrounding The Wetlands and Helix Park.

To enhance this area - while making it available for people to enjoy - a boardwalk has been constructed. This prevents disturbance to the wetlands, and has been found to provide shelter to the wildlife in the area.

Creating Helix Park 

Construction work started in summer 2012.
