The Helix, Falkirk

Forth Valley Tourist Route

The Helix park is home to the striking Kelpies, two 30 foot high stainless steel sculptures by Andy Scott. You can’t miss the huge horse-like braying heads of the two kelpies, which are based on mythical Scottish creatures. You can get a closer look, and even explore inside the sculptures on a tour from the visitor centre.

With pedalo boats, cycle paths and an adventure playpark there is lots to keep young ones busy – and if you bring a towel and change of clothes you could even have fun getting soaked in the splash play area!
