  • A superb experience. What a clever piece of engineering to create a magnificent tribute to such gorgeous creatures. The impression of their spirit changes as the light and atmosphere around them changes and alters the shadows on their muscles, manes and eyes.. spent over an hour in total awe. There are good parking facilities and easy access for mobility impaired. A good gift shop and eats and drinks are available, with good seating outside. Toilet facilities are excellent.
  • We were not expecting much, but found both the Kelpies and Helix park worthy of an afternoon and we wish we had timed it for sunset and the lit Kelpies with the colorful lights. Next time we will see them at night as well! We arrived early afternoon and it was not crowded. We enjoyed reading information in the small museum, looking at the scale versions, and sitting by the water pond. The Kelpies are HUGE and really amazing to see. Very wild and majestic, despite their steel plate construction. We had a lovely walk around Helix Park after and before, which was also wonderful, well laid-out, and clean. People were so friendly here, too, as they enjoyed the public space. Ample, safe parking nearby. Also worth seeing are the canal systems and houseboats along the waterway.
