Context

Helix Park is a 43 hectare zone within the 350 hectares that make up The Helix. High quality pathways connect Helix South and Helix North via The Kelpies through a 27km path network.

These pathways are perfect for cycling, walking, running, skating or riding. The completion of the park is a major contribution to the rejuvenation of the outlying areas in Falkirk.

Work done

At the centre of the park, Fountains Direct was involved in the design and installation of a 33-jet dry plaza fountain system which is controlled by DMX. The 33 variable speed pumps and Comet 5-8T nozzles combined with colour changing LED lighting create a highly dynamic display.

A second feature consisting of 10 fogging jet sets - each with two fogging nozzles - produce a fine, relatively dry mist Both features are very popular, especially with children and are a highlight within the park.
