The Helix has been around since 2003, borne from an idea to create a local greenspace that connects and engages with its local communities. We'd like to think that we've come a long way since then, and made some great achievements in that time. Take a look at some of our achievements below.

What has The Helix achieved so far?

The Kelpies, two 30 metre high stainless steel monuments that form the vanguard of The Helix and the Forth and Clyde Canal.

A kilometre of new canal with towpaths, creating a safe new connection to Grangemouth

27 kilometres of shared access, high quality pathways connecting 16 communities

A new lagoon in Helix Park

A new splash play area

Adventure Play Zone and Splash Play area

The new Plaza Café

Sustainable LED lighting for at least 14 kilometres of these new pathways

Two new toucan road crossings and a new road underbridge

25 direct training places in woodland management hundreds of ongoing volunteer opportunities

Several high level events, including a Bike Week Party, Helix Day 2013 and HOME.
