Dubai Miracle Garden Floral A380 Plane

Visit the World’s Largest Flower Garden – Dubai Miracle Garden

by Dubai Travel Planner

Open once again from 1 November 2021 for the winter season – here’s what you can expect at the world’s largest flower garden

Once one of Dubai’s best-kept secrets now slowly creeping its way into the “must-see” list of attractions for the city is Dubai Miracle Garden.

Incredible to believe that such a place can exist in the desert – but this is Dubai, anything is possible, right?  It is the current Guinness World Record holder of the largest flower garden in the world by total blooms.

Dubai Miracle Garden is open daily in the winter months from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, later on weekends >> more below!

What is there to see and do at Dubai Miracle Garden

The gardens are designed to let your imagination run wild.  There are insta-moments as well as points to simply relax and enjoy the floral displays.

It is one of the best places in Dubai to take your kids but has a charm and appeal for all ages. Romantics especially will enjoy the Miracle Garden experience.

Whilst some exhibits are seasonal, some things have remained as permanent fixtures.  Most prominently, the floral A380 Emirates aeroplane is now a permanent exhibit within Dubai Miracle Garden.

Some other favourites which have returned for many seasons include:

  • The giant 18m tall topiary teddy bear
  • The 15m wide floral birthday clock
  • Hearts passageway – utterly instagrammable floral archway
  • Floral Castle – every little prince and princesses dream
  • Disney Avenue – your favourite characters in giant floral arrangements – including an 18m tall Mickey made with 100,000 flowers and weighing an incredible 35-tonnes!

There are, of course, many additions and changes to the garden each season so even if you’ve visited before it’s well worth coming back to see the latest breathtaking display.

Season 10 in winter 2021/22 sees the addition of a 15-metre tall genie, the floating lady exhibit sure to wow and the Smurf’s Village where you can not only spot your little blue friends, you can even enter little mushroom houses!

During season 10 COVID safety measures remain in place including the wearing of face masks and the request to socially distance and sanitise your hands frequently. A negative COVID test or proof of vaccine is not required for entry.


Where is Dubai Miracle Garden & how to get there

In an area that was previously to be known as Dubailand, south of Al Barsha, this 19-hectare plot of land was created and first opened in 2013, it has since been expanded to its current size (and we suspect from construction work in the area, there’s more to come!)

When is the best time to visit Miracle Garden?

Sunrise in Dubai ~ Spectacular Sunrise Viewing Spots

The best time to visit Dubai Miracle Garden is early in the day before the crowds arrive. You will have a much better chance of taking photos uninterrupted and can take your time to enjoy the displays.

We also recommend visiting in the coolest part of the year, at the start and end of the season, you can get a little bit of dieback. Visit outside of the main school holiday times for even fewer crowds – mid-January through to February weekdays are best.

Is there food available in Dubai Miracle Garden?

Yes, there are several different food outlets within the park, catering to all different tastes from Indian and Middle Eastern restaurants to more western-style food, ice creams, popcorn, you name it!

Note that barbeques are not allowed in the park, and no outside food and beverage is allowed (this has changed since the earlier seasons) – this will be checked by security on arrival.

Can I take a stroller/pushchair to Dubai Miracle Garden?

Yes, most of the park is well maintained, with flat pathways. There’s a lot of walking involved so you will definitely be grateful for having a good stroller with you. There are only a few spots with stairs you may need to carry your infants but you can navigate the vast majority of the park with wheels.

Can I take bikes/scooters into Dubai Miracle Garden?

No, these are not permitted. Only infant strollers or wheelchairs for the elderly and People of Determination are permitted.

Is Miracle Garden the largest flower garden in the world?

By all sources we can find, yes, it has the largest number of blooms of any flower garden in the world at an estimated 150 million blooms, 120 different species. The physical size of the gardens at 19 hectares is NOT the largest in square footage, they just pack the most in!

Stay tuned as we understand future seasons will see the opening of an extension to Dubai Miracle Garden – sure to make an already spectacular attraction even greater (we just hope they don’t hike the prices even further putting it out of reach for many tourists)

What other world records does Dubai Miracle Garden hold?

Dubai Miracle Garden has earned several Guinness World Records for the largest vertical garden (2013) and the world’s largest floral sculpture forming the shape of an Airbus A380 (2016) as well as the tallest (18m) Topiary Sculpture (2018).

Are there any hotels near Dubai Miracle Garden?

Should you wish to stay near Dubai Miracle Garden, you could stay in the area known as Motor City or Dubai Studio City. Hotels such as Studio One Hotel and Park Inn by Radisson Blu are the closest to Dubai Miracle Garden (though not within walking distance).

Your best choice may be to stay at a hotel attached to or near to Mall of the Emirates and enjoy the public bus connection. We could recommend Sheraton Mall of the Emirates or at a lower budget but excellent value Rose Park Hotel Al Barsha.
