The Helix Park is a major attraction if you visit Falkirk , with   27 kilometres ( 17 miles ) of cycleways and footpaths , making it an ideal resort for families as well as walkers and cyclists. The Park is on the route of the new John Muir Way which goes from Dunbar , Muir’s home town , to the west coast of Scotland .  The Helix Park in Grangemouth covers a greenspace of almost 300 hectares. Opening up Scotland’s canal network, the Helix will also offer an outdoor recreational area filled with woodland, park, watersports lagoon, pathways, cycleways, and the hugely anticipated 30m landmark scupltures, the Kelpies.

The aim of the project is to transform under-used land between Falkirk and Grangemouth into a thriving urban greenspace , “The Helix”. This includes a performance area, on which large scale events can be held, facilities for watersports provided by the construction of a large lagoon, all surrounded by play areas and high quality pathways.
The Kelpies will be a major tourist attraction in the same way the Falkirk Wheel is , but with no cafe or restaurant facilities visitors may spend little or nothing in the area . The performance area,  which could host large scale events ,  has potential to bring in revenue to the area  , although it is not clear just how much .  Callendar Park  used to host the Big in Falkirk music and arts festival . Recently Falkirk stadium has hosted concerts by Elton John and Rod Stewart .
The final element of the Helix is giant new 
playpark. A set of 
giant wooden tepee-like structures making up the adventure zone will tower over the park.

Falkirk Council has signed off the £377,000 tender for the playpark .

Councillors were told the Helix Park is considered a “destination” for play and the design had to show it could cope with a large volume of use from children aged from three to 14, be as iconic as the park itself and the Kelpies, use materials in keeping with the park which were also durable and be innovative.

Rhona Geisler, director of development services, said: “This will be one of the prime play areas in Scotland and it is expected to be widely used.

“There was a lot of community consultation and feedback about what would be required.

“This product has been selected because of durability and is expected to last for 40 years.”

She added it is hoped the project, which is being part-funded by sportscotland, will be a “great” attraction for youngsters.

 

A spectacular night-time arts event called HOME launched both the opening of the John Muir Way and the international launch of The Kelpies prior to their opening to the public . On two evenings, 17th and 18th April, a selection of one-off, specially-commissioned night-time artworks illuminated Helix Park, as thousands gathered round the iconic Kelpies for an extraordinary animation of the colossal 300 tonne, 30 metre-high sculptures backed by a pulsating soundtrack.

Groupe F – the pyrotechnic maestros who worked at Big in Falkirk as well as the Millennium illumination of the Eiffel Tower – brought the monuments to horse-powered heritage to life with a dazzling light, flame and sound performance.

Funding was provided by the Big Lottery Fund Living Landmarks programme. In 2005 the Helix project was awarded one of the top four prizes, which kick-started the £43 million project. The plans include a new 950-yard (870 m) section of canal, which joins the river below the four fixed bridges at a new sea lock. A new bridge under the M9 motorway has been constructed by cut and cover methods, and a lift bridge has been inserted into the A905 road. Two high-pressure oil pipelines which cross the area to feed the refinery at Grangemouth have been re-routed .

The Kelpies have become a major tourist attraction in Falkirk, a short journey from Edinburgh Airport .  Visit the Kelpies with Airport Taxi Transfers Falkirk . Phone 07576-127097 for a free quote to the Kelpies , Helix Park , Grangemouth

Online specialists like Amazon.com have been gearing up for Mega Monday
But not everyone finds it necessarily the best way to do their shopping.

Outside the very physical presence of a supermarket, there are different opinions about online shopping.

“I’d actually rather go and touch it and see it, to be honest, rather than go online,” says one woman.

Another says she does about half her shopping online. “Convenience,” she adds, “and it’s easier to compare prices. If it’s something expensive I’d go and look at it at the shop first and then buy it online at the best price.”
