FALKIRK WHEEL: WATER PLAY

This is a water-based play space at the world-famous Falkirk Wheel, designed by MHLA to engage all ages in the joy of playing with water and to highlight how precious water is as a resource. Features include a mini canal with lock gates, archimedes screw, spinning drums and bicycle-powered pump. Interpretation text describes how these technologies came about, and how they are still used today in some parts of the world, for example to irrigate crops.
