“A must place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

What an unbelievable regeneration of an area just opposite Falkirk football stadium.

Walks up to 27kms, level pathways/broadwalks, lagoon, great lawn, the Kelpies (horses heads) and much much more is a must be visited place. Guess what; it's all free. Official opening next April but well worth visiting now. Helix North & South along with Park ; a great place to walk the dogs, take children, suitable for scooter, skates and all things on wheels, horses and ponies topped up with canal tow path walks; give yourself plenty of time. Free car parking at Etna temporary car park or Falkirk football stadium. Do enjoy. ♡

“Cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

The sculptures are cool but it was hard to get there because of the closures. There is still work in progress, but the park will be beautiful.

“Going to be amazing!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Wow, where did they find the space for this. The kelpies are amazing. Although this park is no where near ready yet, it was still busy and still lots to look at. There will be lots to do, finally a place where children can be children, from paddling to pond dipping to walks on feet and rides on bikes. By the looks of the sign post there will be plenty of loos too. Will be in Falkirk in the summer 2014 and really can't wait to see it finished.

“Not Ready Yet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Looking forward to visiting this attraction very much still unfinished but you can view the Kelpies the giant horse sculptures albeit only from a distance from the park that is open so far .

“A breath of fresh air”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I attended the opening day and have been back since. This is a lovely park that is in it's infancy. Nice walking area and plenty of open spaces. Looking forwards to the cafe opening And I'll be there more often
