Dubai: The world’s largest natural flower garden, Dubai Miracle Garden, returns for its seventh season on November 1 with a stunning range of new floral masterpieces and live entertainment.
The Guinness record-breaking garden will unveil a reimagined Disney Avenue, floral castle, floating beds and much more this season, the organisers announced.
Earlier this year, Dubai Miracle Garden marked the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse by unveiling an 18-metre floral structure of the iconic Disney character, breaking the garden’s third Guinness World Records Title. This season, the Mickey Mouse structure will sit beside other floral sculptures, making for a true spectacle for Disney lovers.
Other new additions for the season include a Floral Castle that accommodates a garden dining experience and is adorned by unique floral creations by top designers; an illuminated nightscape, and distinctive Caribbean and Asian hammocks enabling a leisurely lie-in under the hanging gardens.
Abdul Nasser Rahhal, creator & co-founder of Dubai Miracle Garden and vice-chairman of Cityland Group, the developer of the ambitious botanical project, said: “We seek to enhance and rejuvenate the experience for visitors every year, and these stunning new additions and our continued collaboration with The Walt Disney Company will provide the kind of dynamic and beautiful spectacles that continue to draw in the crowds.”
He added that visitors to the garden can also enjoy live music, dance and Zumba sessions which will be held at the amphitheatre.
The all-new interactive children’s play zone has been designed to appeal to the imagination of little ones, and feature a trampoline and other entertaining activities, adorned with giant flowers.
The garden will also boast two lakes in the shape of a gigantic tree, with over seven metre-high fountains. Three life-size elephant sculpture fountains will also spray water in various styles and angles for a visually dramatic experience. These will be accompanied by 12m-high 3D sculptures of animal characters. Dubai Miracle Garden will also feature a world-first this season — an eye-catching flower display in 3D-mapping on a floral screen.
Previous years have witnessed an array of original designs as well as record-breaking attractions at the garden.
This season, the Emirates A380 model bedecked in an assortment of flowers and plants, which earned Dubai Miracle Garden a Guinness World Records title in 2016 for featuring “the world’s largest floral structure” has been revamped.
