The biggest themed garden on the planet is set to open this month, in none other than our very own city.
Dubai Municipality is due to unveil a Dhs30million project named Dubai Garden Glow, offering two different experiences encompassing ‘Art by day and Glow by night’.
The garden – located in Zone B of Zabeel Park - is the only destination of its kind for this this size and will be hosting families up until the end of April 2016 for this season.
Those who visit can check out cool encounters such as the Masai Mara wild beast migration or be immersed in the tulips of the Netherlands.
Other highlights include a Porcelain Grand Sheikh Zayed Mosque made up of 90,000 porcelain cups, plates and spoons, plus the Burj Khalifa recreated with 330,000 small medicine bottles filled with coloured water. The replica of the world’s tallest building measures up to an impressive 12 metres.
The Dubai Garden Glow’s underlying message is to encourage the preservation of the planet by recycling and the reduction of carbon footprints.
Expect light shows and live performances by international, regional and local artists, acrobats, plus a street full of food stalls from various nations for the five months the project is open to ticketholders.
More than 5000 visitors are expected to stop by at Dubai Garden Glow and the organisers have created special zones and activities for children in order to cater to all. With the winter months in the UAE being a great time to be outdoors, little ones can enjoy concepts such as the talking tree, panda paradise, dino camp and candy land, plus there will be a dedicated area where they can enjoy ‘learning with fun’.
