Located in the heart of Dubailand, the 72,000 square metre destination will be brought to life with the largest display of the most fragrant and colorful blooms, with over fifty million flowers of 120 varieties.
This season, Dubai Miracle Garden has also introduced an all-new 400-meter walking track for those who want to enjoy a leisurely walk amidst the floral artistry.
This track will also be utilised for daily entertainment that features costume and floral parades, street performers, Zumba sessions, as well as other physical and recreational activities.

Previous years have witnessed an array of original designs as well as record-breaking attractions, which will continue to act as some of the most extravagant displays.
