Nice park for a walk while you visit the Kelpies. They are stunning! There's also a cofffee shop and a shop with an exhibition about the area. Do watch the video - it's very interesting!

The tour inside one of the Kelpies (Duke) is fascinating. You hear about the history of the area and of the real horses Duke and Baron. You also see how they were constructed. A really interesting and informative tour.
