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

A new wetland boardwalk

A new group of Nordic Walkers, bringing a new health activity to the area

Over 120 trained Nordic Walkers & over 30 trained walk leaders

Multiple community projects, including a new beekeeping society (Helix Beekeepers), Meet The Species events, The Abbotshaugh Sentinel project
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.

A canal tunnel under the M9 motorway

Two new pieces of public art and the refurbishment of two existing pieces

Multiple jobs and contracts for local and national companies during construction
