Growing flowers in the desert is no easy feat, especially in the scorching heat and dry conditions. It must have took a miracle to created the Dubai Miracle Park, where 45 million flowers were planted!
If you visit the park in person, you will see why the 721 000 sq ft outdoor recreational park has been dubbed the “World’s Most Beautiful and Biggest Natural Flower Garden.” The spectacular display of flowers and sculptures throughout the garden is just incredible! There isn’t anything quite like it-rows upon rows of brightly coloured flowers transform the lifeless desert into a beautiful, awe-inspiring oasis!
There is a massive flower covered perimeter wall, which is vying for the title of the world’s longest flower wall in the Guinness Book of Records; arched pathways and sculptures in all shapes and sizes covered in flowers, 10 metre high pyramids, vintage car planters and so much more! The amount of flowers is almost overwhelming!
The park features about 30 different flower varieties, including petunias, geraniums and marigolds. Many of the flowers displayed were grown for the first time in the Gulf region. The flowers are watered through drip irrigation.
The Dubai Miracle Park was designed by the Akar Landscaping and Agriculture Co. It took 60 days and 400 people to create the massive park. Their intent was to show the rest of the world that Dubai isn’t just a city made of concrete and steel. While the rest of the world is still complaining about the cold winter weather, the flowers in sunny Dubai are in full bloom!
The park opened on Valentine’s Day and will be open until late May. Organizers are hoping the attraction will bring in a million visitors a year.
