Park Trails

Head Outside and get active, and enjoy your local area. We have created a series of walks and activities, suitable for everyone and anyone. These have been designed to:

  • Provide lots of ideas to help you to be active at a pace and time that suits your lifestyle.
  • Encourage you to join in with your friends and family either in person (if you can) or maybe virtually.
  • Develop new skills, maybe learn a little and have fun at the same time.

When completing any of the challenges you are encouraged to “be in the moment” and enjoy it! By paying attention to the present moment it can help boost your mood and reduce stress levels. Check out our current walks and activities below and most importantly, have fun.

Park Trails

  • Welly Walk at the Helix

    Ease: Easy, suitable for families and children
    Length: 1.5km
    Duration: 30 mins – 1 hour
    Map: Download the map here

    Make Time: We are all busy, have demands coming from all sorts of different areas of our life, and simply don’t feel like there is time to stop and be in the moment. If this is you then, as you walk along the route listen to the sound your steps make on the different sections of path. There will definitely be squelchiness, but you may also hear the crunch of frozen leaves underfoot, the crack of dried twigs snapping under your feet and splishy-splashy noises in the puddles. Enjoy the sounds and focus of the feelings you experience along the walk and most of all enjoy it.

    Release your inner explorer and Head Outside on the less well known wildlife walks around The Helix Park. This walk is a wet and muddy path so watch your step, we keep it natural so we don’t disturb the natural environment for all the animals and birds. You’ll be getting right in there amongst the homes of all our feathered and furry friends. Wellies optional but recommended.


    Start at The Falkirk Stadium. On the right hand side you will see a wee wooden sign letting you know you have found the start of the walk.

    Follow the hedge line keeping to the right as this is a circular route.

    After around 100m, look out for our bug hotel on the right, it’s five star and you can’t miss it because the roof is massive.

    Fun fact: A bug hotel is a sheltered purpose built structure that provides a safe environment for beneficial insects which keep the park ecosystem in balance. You may not always like creepy crawlies but they are amazing for the environment. This haven is home to beetles, ladybirds, spiders and even mice and frogs get in on the action. If you would like to build your own Bug Hotel click here.

    That’s you met the tiniest inhabitants of the Helix Park, but you may also see deer and buzzards and look out for a very special new resident – a Unicorn.

    It’s about to get even wetter! Keep following the path and there’s a den building area for everyone to have a play in, big kids encouraged. Join the rest of the community extending the big den or build your own nearby. Use natural materials from the ground, avoid man made stuff and please don’t be tempted to snap branches off or disturb living plants.

    If you’ve built a den or even added to an existing one, this is a great place for a selfie, we’d love it if you could post yours on social media with the #FitForLifeFalkirk.

    Dens are a great place for Gruffalos to hide or to find the biggest imaginary bear if you and the family enjoy Going on a Bear Hunt. You can borrow these and many other great books from our libraries as well as finding out more about the wildlife and habitat you’ve discovered today. Check out some of our recommendations here.

    You’re now on your way out of the Welly Walk, you’ll go through big scots pines and it should feel very sheltered and cosy.

    You’ll spot a dead hedge of natural materials. Dead hedges are great for wildlife, they provide safe spaces for little birds like robins. You can put your new found den building skills to good use and add a few branches to the dead hedge if you like.

    You’ll then pop out into the park at the lagoon.

    If you’re chilly and want to head home then turn left and you’ll see the spiral 100m to your left. Ring the chime on the way out to signal you’ve finished. If you're not quite ready for home then you can keep walking and explore the rest of The Helix park. 


    The walk is 1.5km long and so you’ve got some great exercise today and the benefit of some fresh, if not chilly, air in your lungs. Keep it up and consider making enjoying the outdoors, or any other form of activity, part of your routine.

    We hope you’ve enjoyed this activity and we look forward to seeing your photo’s using #FitForLifeFalkirk on our social media channels, if you have any additional feedback on our activities please email us at


  • Carron Dams Heritage Trail

    Ease: Easy, suitable for families and children. Might be muddy underfoot at points.
    Length: Approx 3 – 3.5km
    Duration: 1 - 2 Hours
    Map: Download the map here

    Make Time: While enjoying the nature reserve take some time out for yourself to breathe in the fresh air. Practicing deep breathing helps to slow the heartbeat and lower blood pressure, allowing us to feel calmer, focused, and more in control. One tip to help with your breathing is to visualise holding a dandelion in front of you. Slowly breathe in and out visualizing the seeds detaching from the stalk and being moved around by your breath.

    Head outside on a walk around the historic site of Carron Ironworks, through the dams to where the West Carron village once stood. This is where the workers of the ironworks were housed and had developed a vibrant community. The Carron Dams trail was developed by the Hidden Heritage group of local volunteers, who spent several weeks researching the history and untold tales of the area.


    Point 1: Carron Ironworks, Clock Tower
    The clock tower you see today is all we have left of the magnificent frontage of the works that stretched the length of the old Falkirk road at Carron Bridge. This was where the company offices were housed. The window you see here belonged to the publicity department.

    Point 2: The Dawson Mission
    The gospel hall that once stood here was the spiritual centre of the West Carron Village. It was a rudimentary building with a tin roof, built by the hard-living, hard-working iron workers. The hall was not only a place of worship but a place for socialising and entertainment. Some of the most popular activities the Mission provided were the Tuesday evening craft group, the women’s group and the Band of Hope (for children).

    Point 3: Soo Hoose
    The ‘Soo Hoose’ is the pub where the workers of the Carron Ironworks would go, after finishing their shift. ‘Soo’ is the Scot’s word for a pig. Near this pub, a good 60 or seventy years ago, there used to be a piggery and people used to collect the kitchen scraps to feed the pigs. The pub though, might have been named after the ‘pig iron’. A technique where iron poured from the blast furnaces, is guided along in channels in the ground.

    Point 4: The Dykes
    This road was the way in for the foundry men to enter the works. They wouldn’t have entered via the formal offices on old Falkirk Road. We called this road ‘the dykes’ an old Scot’s word for the walls. You’ll see on your right the tall boundary wall of the works while on your left is a lower wall, next to the River Carron.

    Point 5: West Carron Village
    The village of West Carron was once a thriving community of Carron Company employees situated behind the works near the furnace lade, the railway line, and the area known locally as The Dams. The houses were built in blocks around a square. They consisted of a room and kitchen and were the typical working class houses that you would expect to see in the first half of the 20th century - outside shared toilets, no running hot water, shared washhouses

    Point 6: The Lade
    The lade today looks like a stagnant body of water, overgrown with weeds and reeds, which on a warm summer’s day can smell quite ripe. 250 years ago this was a body of water, running true and clear. The lade drew its water from the river Carron, and ran for about a mile to the area known today as ‘The Dams’ which used to power the blast for the furnaces.

    Point 7: The Dams
    Back in the day the dams were used to power the blast for the ironworks’ furnaces. Instead of the fenland (a type of natural habitat) you see today, you should image a loch, with thousands of gallons of water. Now the dams are nearly drained with only a small pond remaining in the middle. The marshland you see around you, is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a habitat for a wide variety of insects and birds.

    Point 8: The Snail
    This fine snail is just one of the many wee and not so wee beasties you’ll find down the dams. You’ll see it’s written a silvery poetic message in its slime. It’s telling you to slow down, follow its trail into the dams and appreciate this gem of a nature reserve.

    Point 9: Forge Row
    There is little that remains today of what was once known as Forge Row. This used to be a row of cottages with pantile roofs, some of the earliest examples of Carron Company housing. Now all that remains are a few broken bricks showing the shape of the foundations. Forge Row was built to accommodate some of the company’s most valued workers.

    Point 10: Solitary Bee
    Now don’t be frightened of this giant bee – there’s only one of them. That’s because it’s a solitary bee and they don’t really sting. They nest in the ground by themselves, not in a hive. They do like to stay close to other solitary bees though they don’t work together. Solitary bees are great pollinators and depend on meadows of wild flowers to survive.

    Now you’ve finished the walk why not test your memory with a quick virtual quiz? Try and answer without looking back at the walk text.
    1. Which department did the remaining window belong to?
    2. What was the children’s activity in the Gospel Hall called?
    3. What does Soo mean in Scots?
    4. Where did the Lade get its water from?
    5. Who lived on Forge Row?
    6. Where do Solitary bees nest?

    Credits: The Carron Dams Heritage Trails was created by the Hidden Heritage: Lost Villages community research group, led by Lorna Swinney. The full version of the trail, along with the audio guide produced for it is hosted at the Falkirk Explored app. The Falkirk Explored mobile app is developed by the Great Place project. Great Place is a partnership scheme between Falkirk Council, Falkirk Community Trust, Scottish Canals and Central Scotland Green Network, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Great Place seeks to highlight the rich heritage that makes Falkirk a wonderful area to live and work. It celebrates Falkirk’s long history, industrial heritage, the beauty of the landscape, as well as the stories of the vibrant local communities that live in the area.

  • Love and Kisses Walk or Cycle

    Degree of Difficulty: Easy
    Parking/Access: Park at nearby Kelpies Car Park and walk to the Kelpies  to start the route.
    Length of activity: 1 ½ miles
    Duration of activity: 30-45mins (not including time for activities)
    Map: Download the map here

    Start the walk at the Kelpies, the park and paths are popular so cyclists please look out for pedestrians and walkers listen out for a bell warning you someone is cycling up behind you.

    Cross the bridge by the motorway and head round the back of the Horsebox Catering where you’ll see these (see photo 1) brightly colour canal boat storage huts.

    Head behind the huts and follow the fingerpost waymarkers which direct you to Love and Kisses. You will have the canal on your LHS and the river on your RHS. Cross over a small bridge.

    Continue on the path with the water treatment works on your LHS. The path is flat and wide enough for pushchairs.

    There are lovely views of the river to your RHS and you may see ducks, swans and even coots. Coots are smaller than a duck, have very dark feathers and have a white flash down their foreheads (see photo 2). You may enjoy playing Bird Bingo, another Fit For Life activity while you enjoy this walk.

    Continue to follow the path over several more small bridges until you come to a cross roads. On a bright day why not try the Human sunclock? (see photo 3) Stand on the slab in the location indicated by whatever month it is when you take the walk. Your shadow will fall on one of the metal plaques coming out of the ground, estimating the time. To continue your walk carry on with the sun clock on your RHS following there is a fingerpost directing you to the Love and kisses sculpture.

    After a short walk through the trees you will come across Love and kisses. It’s massive so don’t worry that you’ll miss it. ( see photo 4) There is a small metal plaque on the LHS of the path telling you about the sculpture and Love and Kisses is on the RHS of the path.

    The sculpture is also sometimes called the Abbotshaugh Sentinel and was created by artist Jephson Robb. The inspiration was the shape of a laurel leaf which references the rich Roman heritage of the Falkirk Area. From certain angles it also looks like a heart and a pair of lips. It is made out of Corten Steel

    Once you’ve taken an arty selfie or two you can either head back to the Kelpies, or enjoy some of the other well signposted routes in the community woodland.

    The woodland provides a year-round home for many species including Roe deer, foxes, buzzards and kestrels. How many can you spot?

    At the sunclock you could have turned right and this would have taken you to the new, impressive green painted bridge across the River Carron which connects the Bainsford, Langlees, Carron and Carronshore communities. (see photo 5) It spans 48m - the same length as seven double decker buses - and is held together by 1500 bolts.

    It’s suitable for both cyclists and walkers so why not check it out.

    For more local walks in the woods check out this brilliant booklet by Falkirk Council Ranger Service.

  • Relaxing Sounds of Nature Walk

    Degree of Difficulty: Easy
    Park at the main car park (please remember to bring a £1 for parking)
    Length of activity: 
    1 ½ miles
    Duration of activity:  
    45 mins to 1hr (not including time for activities)

    Starting at the Muiravonside main car park pass through the metal arch way (photo 1 - see bottom of page for all photos), take the path down through the wild flower meadow, keep a look out for Buzzard, Sparrow hawk and Kestrel. Passing through the community orchard (Photo 2) and turning left down the hill you might want to try *stopping at regular intervals to just close your eyes and listen to the sounds around you – the running water and maybe even the sound of a nearby Woodpecker and Starlings chattering. Can you hear where the calls are coming from? 

    Go down to the hill and turn left at the bottom (Photo 3) heading to the bench next to the river. Take a seat and listen to the sounds, take a moment to slow your and deepen your breathing and keep a look out for the birds on the river – you might see grey herons as well as ducks and the occasional kingfisher. Once you get comfortable with deep breathing, you can change the ratio of inhalation and exhalation to 1:2 (you slow down your exhalation so that it’s twice as long as your inhalation) this is proven to help you relax.

    Continue to follow the river downstream and find the Avon Aqueduct, why not climb the steps to the canal (Photo 4) and have a look at the stunning view, a lovely spot to take a quick selfie perhaps or just take it all in. Following the steps back down to the park turn right and follow path along to the Lime kilns (photo 5) go over the bridge and follow the steps up to the top, turn right walking along the back of the farm. Walk through the woodland car park and cross the road (photo 6) following the green tracks trail way marker posts. (photo 7) At the top of the hill turn left at the way marker (photo 8) and follow the main track back down the hill (photo 9) to the drive and turn right and follow this back to the start of the walk.

    If you’ve taken any photos please share these on your social media using the hashtag #FitforlifeFalkirk, and comment on whether you’ve enjoyed your experiences today.

    Why not explore one of the other community trust parks

  • Explore Art in the Outdoors

    Ease: Easy, suitable for families and children
    Length: 1.3km
    Duration: 30 mins – 1 Hour
    Map: Download the map here

    Make Time: The scenery and views throughout this trail is gorgeous. Make sure you stop, take a moment and drink it in. Enjoy your time outside, in nature and clear your mind.

    Head outside to Muiravonside Park and you’ll find the award winning Sculpture Trail. Follow the trail and you will see beautiful views and read about the environment on our interpretation panels next to the sculpture pieces. Each piece is inscribed with an excerpt from a poem from Kenneth Stephen’s book of children’s poetry ‘Imagining Things’ and is suitable for all ages.


    The trail starts at the main car park. Navigate round the trail from the metal entrance arch, following the ‘art in the park’ waymarkers. You’ll pass through the orchard and climb up the meadow past the ponds where Great Crested Newts live.

    You’ll soon reach the giant teasel sculpture at the top of the meadow. This is a great spot for a selfie! Drop your selfie over to us on Facebook or Twitter using #FitForLifeFalkirk and let us know how your walk is going!

    Continue along the trail and take in the amazing view from the owl bench, see if you can spot the owls up in the trees or the bats in the Doocot.

    The café is currently closed but the swallows outside there, and the poem in the open barn, mark the end of the trail.


    We hope you enjoyed the trail which is 1.3km long! A great way to achieve your daily exercise and getting out and about this winter. If you would like more information on the NHS recommendations on daily exercise head here

    Find out more about Muiravonside Country Park here, you can visit New Parks Farm and say hello to all our lovely animals or stop by the play park and let the kids use some energy. We hope you visit us again soon.

    If you’re looking for more inspiration or resources we have gathered some information on what’s available in our libraries, check out our list here.

  • Bird Bingo

    Ease: Easy, suitable for families and children
    Length: as long or short as you like
    Duration: as long as you want to stay out in the great outdoors
    Bird ID: To help you with this task please go to here.

    This activity can be done in any park or open space with a pond or stream nearby. It needs no special equipment but you might like to use binoculars if you have them. We recommend the lake at Callendar Park, the big pond at Kinneil and the lagoon at The Helix as great places to try this out.

    Grey Heron
    Young herons have grey heads, look for adults with a white head and neck and big black ‘eyebrows’. Herons nest in trees and make big messy piles of twigs high up (see image below).

    They are one of the heaviest flying birds in the world and nearly everyone can tell a swan apart from other birds, their all white plumage and long necks are iconic. However to be a true bird expert learn to tell the three different types of swan apart. You are most likely to see Mute Swans in our parks but there are also Whooper and Bewick Swan (see image below).

    Mute swans can be identified by the black knob at the top of their bill. They aren’t ‘mute’ by the way, you’ll probably hear them chattering away (see image below).

    Telling Whooper and Bewick swans apart is far more challenging. Look at how far the yellow on their bills extends down. If it’s a Whooper swan it goes all the way to their nostrils in a triangle shape (see image below).

    A really common one is the Mallard, we have lots of these in Callendar Park. The males have a gorgeous green plumage on their heads and necks and a yellow bill. The females and youngsters are a more speckled brown colours to camouflage them (see image below).

    Up your duck game by learning these more unusual species which may be more difficult to spot.

    Mandarin. The male ducks (drakes) are a spectacular mix of copper, purple, black and buff in their winter plumage. The females are camouflaged again, like the female Mallards. This helps protect them when they sit on their eggs. Their nests are often in holes in trees (see image below).

    Look out for Goosander. These ducks again have different male and female plumage in the winter. Males have white bodies with black heads and wing flashes. Their bills are red. Females have brown heads (with a bit of bedhead look) and pale grey bodies. When it’s not the breeding season the males look pretty much like the females (see image below).

    Send us your pics of any of these birds or maybe even something more unusual which you have spotted in our parks on Facebook or Twitter and use #FitForLifeFalkirk, we love seeing our customer photographs.

    If you’re looking for more inspiration or resources we have gathered some information on what’s available in our libraries, check out our list here.

  • Brush up on local history at Kinneil

    Ease: Easy, suitable for families and children although can be muddy underfoot at points
    Length: 1.7km
    Duration: 30 mins – 1 hour
    Map: Download the map here

    Make Time: This walk along National Cycle Route 76 is a great opportunity to think about the things you enjoy and take a moment to appreciate them. It might be the beautiful Scottish countryside, the fun of watching the wildlife or just enjoy the sun on your face (we hope!).

    For this challenge, head outside with family and friends or take this challenge on solo. Either way, by the end you’ll be well on your way to ‘expert’ status. Keep an eye out below for some fun facts and tricky questions!


    Start in the woodland car park off Provost Road. Mind the mud, it’s historically authentic but still slippy.

    Once you pass round the big metal gate head uphill to the left. After a hundred metres you’ll find two gateposts in the middle of nowhere.

    Fun fact: When the Big House was lived in by the Hamilton family, the grounds were landscaped and this gate marked a crossing point over the haha. Haha’s are a hidden ditch which acts in the same way as a fence or wall does to keep sheep and deer out of the gardens whilst preserving the uninterrupted view of the landscape beyond. Look right and you’ll see the remains of the ditch through the trees. The trees weren’t there when the haha was built.

    Head back down the hill and turn left on the big track.

    As you turn a bend in the track, keep your eyes peeled on the younger trees to the right hand side of the path. There’s a massive metal bowl lying in the grass! This is part of the type of steam engine apparatus James Watt would have used while he was experimenting to improve the condensing steam engine.

    Walk another 100m and you’ll see a clearing on the right hand side of the track and some posts in the middle of the grass. Head that way, you’re about to come face to face with a World Class part of history…. You’re now standing in a Roman Fortlet.

    Fun fact: Before Scotland was even called Scotland, the Romans invaded from Europe and worked their way up through our island conquering the natives. They built a wall in England called Hadrian’s Wall and then pushed further north and built the Antonine Wall right here where you are. The soldiers who guarded this section of the wall lived here in the fortlet. They didn’t stay long, it actually took longer to build the wall than they spent using it as a defence! Read the interpretation board to find out all about the fortlet and the Romans.

    Question 1. How many men were in the fortlet and what did they do? (Answers at bottom of page)

    Walk through the fort and head off to the right where you’ll see a hedge meeting the tree line. Turn right and walk round the pond on the little path. Give the ducks a wave if they are paddling around. You’ll come out at a cross roads after the wee bridge. Turn right there.

    Coming out of the trees you’ll spot the end wall of Kinneil Kirk, the only remaining part of the building. Look up and you’ll see the two holes where two bells would have hung.

    Across from the church is a new metal sculpture called The Beacon. It celebrates Kinneil Kirk’s role in the past as a navigation aid for ships coming into Bo’ness Harbour of the Forth. If you look at the silhouette of the beacon it mirrors the architectural shapes of the kirk. There’s lots of info both on the beacon structure itself and on the board at the other side of the church.

    Before you head to the church interpretation board, have a look at the gravestones around the church. They are very old and you’ll be able to see symbols on some of them which aren’t generally put on headstones nowadays.

    Fun fact: Gravestones used to reflect the job a person had done, you’ll be able to find symbols relating to seafaring as the church was popular with sailors but there are other symbols too. If you find other symbols which intrigue you can look online to find their meanings here

    Carry on through the graves to the church interpretation board.

    Question 2.– Which Saint was one of the bells in the church’s double belfry dedicated to?

    Question 3. - What was the Laird’s loft used for?

    Carry on round the path to the bridge and cross it. Immediately on the other side is a roofless building which gets called James Watt’s cottage. He probably didn’t actually work there but he did conduct experiments there to improve the steam engine!

    Question 4. – What civil engineering projects did James Watt work on locally?

    Looming over the cottage is Kinneil house. Come back next year when the house will be open limited weekends for special tours. Pass through the gap in the wall and come out at the front of the house.

    Question 5. – What type of stories are depicted in the painted rooms in Kinneil House

    As you walk away from the house on the main drive you will spot an orchard on the left.

    Fun fact: When the Duke of Hamilton lived here having an orchard would have been a status symbol and creating new apple varieties was all the rage.

    Question 6. Can you find out what the fruit was worth in 1696?

    This new orchard is planted as a timeline with new apple varieties near the house and older ones at the house end. It’s not just apples which have been planted, look at the larger info board and find out what else is growing here.

    Question 7 - How many girls names are contained in the fruit varieties?


    You’ve probably been out for an hour or so now, walking round the site and finding out about local history. If you’ve done the whole route you’ve gone 1.7km, well done! Making exercise a regular part of your day is a great way to improve your health and fitness. There are some other great walks in Bo’ness like this one here, you can also find out more about Kinneil Local Nature Reserve here.

    You can get a really in depth look at the history of Kinneil here or join the Friends of Kinneil and get involved in protecting and restoring the site.

    PS. Not all the history on site has left visible remains, early next year a new heritage trail will be installed on site with interpretation boards showing how things would have looked in the past.

    If you’re looking for more inspiration or resources we have gathered some information on what’s available in our libraries, check out our list here.

    We hope you’ve enjoyed this activity and we look forward to seeing your photo’s using #FitForLifeFalkirk on our social media channels, if you have any additional feedback on our activities please email us at

  • Callendar Park Activity Trail

    Ease: Easy, suitable for families and children
    Length: 1.5km
    Duration: 30 mins – 1 hour
    Map: Download the map here

    Fun Fact: If you keep an eye out, you have a high chance of seeing squirrels throughout the trail – see if you can get a photo or two! Squirrels have 4 toes on their front feet, which are extremely sharp and used for gripping tree bark whilst climbing. They also have 5 toes on their back feet. The hind legs of squirrels are double-jointed, which gives them the ability to run up and down trees very quickly. The most iconic behaviour of squirrels is storing nuts and acorns for winter. Which is necessary for the species of squirrel that don’t hibernate.


    The trail starts at the kiosk beside the play park. There is an information board in front of the kiosk which will point you in the right direction.

    Your first point of call will be the wobbly bridge.

    Then pass between the 2 redwoods that stand tall either side of the path.

    The trail now heads uphill but don’t worry, we have placed seats along the route in case you need a rest or fancy having an impromptu picnic.

    You’ll soon come across the first of our balance beams on the route, why not give it a try? See how far you can get along it.

    A bit further along you will come to a large Yew tree, it’s a great shelter if the weather is bad. Next to the tree is another balance beam and also a beautiful carved seat. As you cross the path you will see the next item on the trail, the stepping logs which will test your balance again!

    Next up is the bench and the TV which makes a nice place to stop for a breather though there isn’t much on the TV worth watching most days.

    Feeling rested? Good, next up is another balance beam, this one’s a bit longer and it will test you! This area is a great place for finding sequoia cones, which can be used as eco-decorations for arts and crafts but don’t forget to recycle them when you are finished with them.

    The stepping logs will guide you down the hill. Once at the bottom you will see the new climbing frame complete with a seat for tired adults! Spend some time here before heading on to the final piece in the trail, our zip wire which is the longest dual zip wire in the district!


    The Activity Trail at Callendar Park is 1.5km long so if you’ve finished it you’ve probably hit or exceeded the recommended 20mins of moderate exercise the NHS encourages so well done! Heading out today and experiencing the trail and the outdoors is an effective way to improve your physical and mental well-being so make sure to visit us again.
