Miracle Garden in Dubai is floral fantasy, filled with forty-five million flowers. It is a glorious sight with a splash of colors mixed with the heady fragrance of flowers. The Miracle Garden is truly unique, a grand floral garden in the desert sands.

The temperatures in Dubai are quite high. It is tough to grow greenery here in the desert, and this makes the Miracle Garden all the more special and unique.

The Miracle Garden is studded with floral topiary of pyramids, arches, circles, stars, igloos, hearts to mention a few.

When you enter the Miracle Garden, you will be uplifted by the fragrance of the flowers and be enthralled by the sight of millions of flowers beautifully designed into topiary displays.

About the Miracle Garden

The Miracle Garden is located in Dubai Land near the Arabian Ranches. The Miracle Garden currently has 45 million flowers. It occupies an area of 72,000 Km. It was opened on Valentine's Day February 14th, 2013.

There is a 4 Km pathway running throughout the Miracle Garden with beautiful floral topiary shapes on either side. There are mini umbrellas hung from above for shade. There are floral arches or heart-shaped arches decorating the walkways.

There are heart shaped flower beds and star-shaped flower beds throughout the park. Other highlights of the Miracle Garden are the 10 m high flower pyramids, flower-decked vintage cars, flower-decked designer cars and the outdoor pools.

The Miracle Garden is the project of Akar Landscaping and Agricultural Company.

Another highlight of the Miracle Garden is the flower-decked perimeter wall stretching for a distance of 1 km. This wall is currently in the running for the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest floral wall in the world. The Miracle Garden is also in the running for the world's largest flower clock.

Eco-friendly System of Watering the Plants

Miracle Garden uses an eco-friendly system to water the plants. Waste water is re-used to water the plants through drip irrigation.

There are more plans in line for the future involving a multi-storey car park, souvenir shops, restaurants, retail stores and much more.

Miracle Garden is closed from the end of May to September because of the extreme heat. Miracle Garden is a great place to visit when you are in Dubai.
