Dubai Garden Glow: Overview

Dubai Garden Glow opened its gates to the public in the year 2015, on December 23rd, spread over 40 acres of vacant space. A unique themed garden, located in Zabeel Park, it is the ultimate family entertainment destination in the Middle East. Sheikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid inaugurated the landmark, in a bid to ensure the creation of a more sustainable environment in Dubai. It took nearly Dh30 million to construct Dubai Garden Glow, and to get it up and running. Makes sense, since it is considered to be the largest themed garden in the world. Towards the day it is an art park, and when night falls, it is a luminescent heaven for the visitors. But don’t worry, energy is not being wasted here, since all the attractions are powered using a slew of energy-efficient LEDs.

It is actually an amalgamation of 2 different theme parks, collectively home to several themed attractions, including Dino Museum, Symphony of Lights, Stage shows and parades, Kids’ fun area, World of Underwater, Animal Kingdom and Mushroom Forest. There are also various restaurants and cafes here, on a separate food street, which offers a plethora of world cuisine. In addition, there is an eco-friendly replica of the Burj Khalifa here, made out entirely of medicine bottles. All the structures at Dubai Garden Glow have been created by artists from all over the world. Nearly 150 artists were employed for the same, who invested almost 200,000 man hours to construct the garden. There are over 32 installations here, and all of them have been made out of recycled products.
