The Helix: Home of The Kelpies

The Helix project has been on the go since 2003, a result of an idea to create a local green space that connects and engages with the communities it reaches. Helix Park opened its doors to visitors in 2013, with The Kelpies constructed the next year, on 21 April 2014.

This outdoor recreational park land can be found between Falkirk and Grangemouth, covering over 350 hectares of green space and fun for visitors of all ages to enjoy the outdoors. Some of the facilities include a lagoon for water activities, splash fountains, café and adventure play zone.
The Helix is also home to The Kelpies. Standing at 30 metres tall, and weighing over 300 tonnes each, The Kelpies are the world’s largest equine sculptures towering over the Forth and Clyde canal. Visitors to The Kelpies can take part in a fascinating guided tour, discovering the art, history and engineering behind Scotland's newest "must see" visitor attraction!
