Dubai Garden Glow is back for the third season with a spectacular Ice Park
Ice sculptures create an enchanting oasis for children and adults alike at Dubai Garden Glow’s latest new attraction, the Ice Park. From the winged chariot and fire-breathing dragon to dinosaurs and polar bears and Dubai’s modern architectural wonders, the park is as much a tribute to the mythological world as it is to the passage of time.
About 150 artists from around the globe carved out 20-25 sculptures, including the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa and the UAE’s pride, Shaikh Zayed Mosque, out of 5,000 or 3,000 tonnes of ice over a period of 75 days.
Set at a temperature of -7 degrees Celsius, the park features a play area for children of the desert to better-acquaint with ice.
The Ice Park is just one of the main attractions on offer for the third season of Dubai Garden Glow, which is now aglow with new installations.
Riot of colours
Art by day, the Colourful World brings breathtaking illumination to life by night.
Raising the happiness quotient
Taking a cue from the emirate’s emphasis on happiness, Dubai Garden Glow has come up with its own Happiness Street. Let your imagination run wild aided by the animal characters, which line its sides and seem to have jumped out of children’s books. Or get ready for a rush of happy childhood memories as you saunter past the circus tent.
