The Heart of
the Helix Walk & The Helix Heritage
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.
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
work started in summer 2012.
