Something fantastic is happening in central Scotland! Land
between Grangemouth and Falkirk is being transformed into the
Discover the Helix here.
New paths are being constructed all across the Helix, in Helix South, Helix North, and
Park - discover where the Helix could take you.
Demand for allotments is growing throughout Scotland and the
Falkirk area is no exception. Our new project will create
in the Helix South area, which will be managed with
the support of the Falkirk Allotment Society.
The Helix is a place to relax and enjoy, a place to explore,
but it is also a unique opportunity for local businesses to develop
and grow as the site becomes busier over the coming years.

Walking, running and
cycling are already popular activities
on these new routes which provide vital connections between local
towns and villages between Grangemouth and Falkirk.
Since the Helix South paths opened in June 2011 they have become
popular local routes as well as the ideal environment to enjoy some
fresh air and exercise. With easy access to the Helix South paths
from Beancross they are perfect for all users, and the solid
surface is ideal for wheelchair users.
Many new facilities are being developed for The
Helix. Find out about Central
Park and the Canal Hub, which will provide
excellent facilities for all visitors including cafés, toilets,
event spaces and much more.
Dundee based architects Nicoll Russell Studios has won a
competition to design a visitor centre for the Canal Hub. The £1m
building will provide visitor facilities close to the landmark
Kelpies sculptures designed by Andy Scott.
