The kelpies at helix park
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid, Wheelchair, Mobility Scooter
This is an out door visit, the kelpies are set in helix park by the canal . They are metal art works of Clydesdale horse heads y artist Andy Scott . And are based n two horses called duke and baron. It is easy to get around to look at the sculputure. Each head is surrounded by a small moat. There are both ramps and steps that take you up to look closely at the heads. With plenty of room to get around. There is also a visitor centre and cafe serving hot food, hot drinks and snacks . As well as an outside catering van . Staff were helpful and the food in the cafe is very nice. Parking is easy there are spaces for disabled near the toilets and it’s also possible to park the car by the visitor centre for disabled people. But you need to get a barrier opened which isn’t maned during some days in the winter months. There is also a large play park at the front of the complex which has plenty of activities for children of all ages.
Transport & Parking
Parking is easy this is either at the main car park or by the visitor centre. There is also parking near the play park area.
There are disabled toilets but these were not used.
Staff were helpful and there was room in the cafe to get around with the wheelchair.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
There are notices inside the centre and cafe with regard the covid situation and hand sanitizer. But as it’s mostly outside it’s quite covid safe. We have been here a few times over the past year and have always felt quite safe,
