The Dubai Miracle Garden
is the city’s most popular flower garden, located in its Dubailand district. The garden was launched on Valentines Day in 2013, and at 72,000m² / 775,000ft², it is the largest natural flower garden in the world. The horticultural hotspot also won the Moselle Award for ‘New Garden Experience of the Year’ in 2015.
Due to the incredibly hot summers the UAE experiences, the Miracle Garden only opens for the winter season, from October to April. There are a wide range of floral displays made up of over 45 million flowers. Many of the flowers are sculpted into recognizable shapes and designs, such as animals and landmarks – there is even a ‘Floral Clock’, a giant working clock adorned with blooms which change from season to season.
Some highlights inside the Dubai Miracle Garden include:
Disney Avenue – see much-loved Disney characters brought to life by flowers, including an 18m/59ft-high Mickey Mouse
Dubai Butterfly Garden – the Miracle Garden also has a dedicated area housing over 15,000 butterflies across 50 different species
Hearts Passage – take a stroll through this tunnel of multi-coloured love hearts made entirely of flowers
