Dubai Miracle Garden: A Paradise on Earth

A miracle unfolded in the middle of the desert! 

Who would have thought that the world's most beautiful garden can be found in a dry desert land? Dubai Miracle Garden is indeed a miracle, a piece of paradise in a city where everything is possible. It has an area of 72,000 square meters, with 4 km pathways, 1 km flower wall and over 45 million flowers!

I love flower gardens, but never had an idea about Dubai Miracle Garden at Dubailand. Shame on me! I've never seen an ad campaign prior its launch. It was my husband who discovered it while reading the daily paper. He was too excited to show me his latest find! So last Friday, he fetched me at work and took me to the Miracle Garden. He knew I would fall head over heels in love with the place.

And yes I did! Who wouldn't love to see beautiful landscape designs and unique flower arrangements? At Dubai Miracle Garden, there are pyramids, cubes and domes made of grass and colorful blooms!  I was stunned to see a huge area of flora in vivid colors; enclosed by a perimeter fence adorned with flowers, vying to be Guinness Records' longest flower wall in the the world!

There is a bed of Petunia in different shades and flower arcs of pink Geranium!

At the end of the garden are two man-made lakes which made the attraction more refreshing and relaxing.

If you have been to Al Ain Paradise, you can somehow spot some similarities. The pathway with heart arcs and floral pyramids may not surprise you, but Dubai Miracle Garden has a lot more to offer. It has bigger and bolder creative landscapes; huge flower umbrellas, peacocks with blossoms as feathers, flowers spilled from  a bucket made of grass and vintage cars adorned with greens and blooms!

Though I was so pleased with the view, there was a down side. My perception of a garden is a quiet place where I can day dream while lying on the grass, I couldn't do that at Dubai Miracle Garden! It was too noisy. The caretakers blew their whistles every second; thou shall not touch that, thou shall not sit there! The whistles were annoying, but of course, I totally understand that it is their responsibility to protect the plants and maintain the beauty of the garden. Kudos to them and to the people behind Dubai Miracle Garden for creating such a wonderful place in a desert land with the use of sub-surface irrigation.

Dubai Miracle Garden is open daily; 9 am until 9 pm on weekdays, 9 am until 11 pm on weekends. Entrance fee for adults and children above 3 years old is 20 AED. It is located at Dubailand, along Umm Suquiem Road, near DuBiotech. Location map at the end of this post. There were no buses to the garden when we visited last February, so we took the cab from Mall of the Emirates. This March 2013, RTA finally added Dubai Miracle Garden to the public bus routes; ride the F30 bus at Mall of the Emirates. For current bus route and schedule, please call RTA's hotline 8009090.

  2. Uy we're planning to come here once we have BIL's car return from the mechanic shop. Hubby Googled the place and was so mayabang while saying "Sweety guess where we will take you next week?", I replied "Miracle Garden?" hahah! I screwed him. I saw him kasi checking out the place so I took a wild guess. Nawala yung moment hahahah!

  4. Ang ganda! Who would have thought you can have that garden in the middle of the desert! Do the flowers easily wilt / constantly watered?

    1. Hi Marie, they use sub-surface irrigation. wala sprinklers, below the soil ang water drippers. I was so amazed nga. But the garden will be closed on Summer, it's too hot here kasi.

    1. Odorless naman. hahaha! They use petunia, marigold and geranium mostly; walang strong floral scent. Pag roses siguro, may sweet scent talaga. :)

  31. Such great efforts are made to maintain this place cguro noh? I would understand why woud the caretakers be so OC about the surroundings. Sobrang ganda.

    ReplyDelete
  32. for all those who have not seen a real garden, this is surely a miracle garden,for the price one have to pay and watch only one particular flowers spread all over in different block and shapes doesn't really impress me and specially the price of 20AED for children above 3years with no play area that is so sad. children just dont like to see flowers they like it even more creative, not like the car bonnet having slab of grass and flowers blooming

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh! I sooo love your blog makes me wanna go back to Dubai again :)

    1. Hi Michele! They must have changed the timings. It used to be 10am-10pm, but now it's 9am-9pm on weekdays, 9am-11pm on weekends. Just check the official website before you visit as they might change the opening hours again.

      Thanks for dropping by! :)

  38. Hi guys & ladies...
    I am so happy that so many people are visiing this place and they like this miracle in desert. I have personally seen them indulging and getting lost into the colors and feel of the garden. How I've seen them??? Because I am a landscape engineer who is involved alongwith many more for the development of "DUBAI MIRACLE GARDEN" and "AL AIN PARADISE". And I see the people coming to my garden and appreciating it. And when I see an ocean of people on weekends, that's the moment when all our team says that we've succeeded.
    The development was started for Miracle Garden on 20th November' 2012 and we opened it for u all on the Valentine's day. So you can also say that development of this garden in just 84 days is also a Miracle.
    See ya guys.
    Keep visiting and keep enjoying.
    Love u all.
