Hallglen Policy Bing lies immediately to the south of central Falkirk parklands covering approximately 11 hectares. The southern half of the site has a varied topography and is dominated with woodland, scrub and grassland, the northern half is a flat plateau of red blaes. Both areas are used for general recreational such as cycling and dog walking.
Plans were made to create three new ponds on site to create freshwater habitats that would hold open water in the amphibian breeding season. The area is also part of Come Forth for Wildlife’s Neighbourhood Wildlife Corridor in Falkirk – offering excellent connectivity for wildlife in this region between our habitat sites and events.
