Dubai Miracle Garden opened in 2011 with the aim of becoming the world’s largest flower garden. Quite an ambitious project given its desert location and the adverse weather conditions.
Over the years it has expanded, setting several Guinness World Records on the way.
In 2016 its Airbus A380 feature was declared the largest flower arrangement in the world. In 2018 the Mickey Mouse display was given the accolade of the world’s tallest topiary structure.
Dubai Miracle Garden is a seasonal attraction. It is open from October to April each year. During the summer it closes and the flowers are recycled for fertilizer. Each season opens with new displays.
Ticket prices are reasonable with reductions for children. Check the official website (see information box at the end of this page) for the latest entrance fees and timings.
The garden is located in Al Barsha South. There’s no Metro station nearby. One way to reach it without a car is to take get a taxi from Mall of the Emirates Metro Station. The taxi ride is approximately 6 miles.
Dubai Butterfly Garden is part of the same complex, but is open throughout the year. The entry fee is paid separately.
