Quranic Park is a relatively new public park in Dubai. It opened in 2019 and is themed around the Quran, the holy book of Islam. Muslims and non-Muslims are welcome.
The main attractions are the Glass House and the Miracles Cave.
The park also boasts a lake, orchards, and playgrounds.
The lake features a sunken walkway depicting Musa’s crossing of the sea. Viewed from the side, it appears that visitors are walking through the water.
Orchards include cucumbers, onions, figs and olives, grapes, lentils, and basil.
A jogging and cycle track runs around the perimeter of the park. There’s also a small outdoor gym.
The Glass House is a large greenhouse with displays of plants and trees mentioned in the Quran and Sunnah (literature describing Islamic practice).
The plants are clearly labelled (in English and Arabic) and displays give information about uses, health benefits etc., and the Islamic text that mentions it.
Plants and trees here include corn, olive, citron, lemongrass, saffron, barley, basil, wheat, banana, garlic, sesame, grape, pumpkin, ginger, onion, aloe vera, mustard, and leek.
An indoor observation deck gives a good view of the entire building and plants.
This artificial cave holds interactive displays depicting miracles mentioned in the Quran.
At the time of writing (February 2020), the accompanying audio is in Arabic. There are plans to add an English audio track in the future.
