Callendar Park, Falkirk Falkirk’s Callendar Park could become home to a new network of cycle skills trails that will encourage people of all ages and abilities to get on their bikes.

If funding is found and planning consent is granted, the new cycle skill trails will be next to the Par 3 nine-hole golf course.

The plans include bringing the golf course pavilion back into use, creating a place to house bike repair space well as storage of equipment and changing facilities.

The plans were drawn up by Falkirk Community Trust – now part of Falkirk Council – which says it will create a "flagship public space".

One of the new trails will be a short, green circle level mountain bike route, which will provide an introduction for cyclists to the nearby Canada Wood trails.

A spokesperson for Falkirk Council said: "There will be sufficient space to retain the golf course and include the new cycle facility within the area.

"The cycle trails would also be carefully designed in keeping with the surrounding area, being mindful of other park users."The beginner’s cycling area for basic skills coaching would be flat, located just up from the Pavilion, and ideally situated for parents to watch and supervise."The mountain bike skills area would be located on the west side and offer progression, build fitness, and improve bike handling skills. The existing Pavilion, which is currently underused, would be re-purposed as a cycle and outdoor activity hub. How to get the latest news from Falkirk Live Falkirk Live brings […]
