Floral Arches, Miracle Garden

Miracle Garden in Dubai, UAE, is a floral fantasy filled with more than one fifty million flowers. It is a glorious sight with a splash of colors mixed with heady fragrances of beautiful flowers. The Dubai Miracle Garden experience is truly unique, showcasing a grand floral garden in the desert sands.

Dubai Miracle Garden is one of the biggest flower gardens in the world, occupying an area of 72000 square meters with floral displays made from millions of flowers.

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. Petunia flowers are an integral part of all floral displays in the Mircale Garden.

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

About the Dubai Miracle Garden

The Dubai Miracle Garden is located in Dubai Land near the Arabian Ranches. The Miracle Garden displays over 50 million flowers and occupies an area of 72,000 square Km. The garden was opened on Valentine's Day, February 14th, 2013.

There is a 400-meter pathway running throughout the Miracle Garden with beautiful floral topiary shapes on either side. There are many floral 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 Dubai 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.

This wall had a length of 800 meters and a height of almost three meters from the ground. The wall was officially recognized by the Guinness World Records as the longest flower wall in the world in 2013.

Other Floral Displays to See In The Dubai Miracle Garden

One of the Miracle Garden highlights is Disney Avenue, home to iconic Disney characters displayed in life-like topiary forms. The Mickey Mouse floral structure is a favorite among children. Another favorite is the Big Teddy Bear, 12 meters tall, featuring a heart in the center.

A trip to the Dubai Miracle Garden is not complete without seeing the Floral Castle and the Lake Park. It also features an Amphitheater where live performances and theatrical shows take place from time.

Eco-friendly System of Watering the Plants

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

Miracle Garden is closed from the beginning of May to October because of the extreme heat.

Suppose you plan to visit the Dubai Miracle Garden, plan your visit in November, December and January. These are the months that flowers bloom and are at their best.
