Dubai: The amazing and alluring lights are back – adding glimmer to life in the city – as Dubai Garden Glow opened its doors for its 6th Season on Tuesday.

This year’s theme is ‘Back to Nature’ and people of all ages are sure to find a spot where he/she can enjoy Dubai Garden Glow’s latest attractions. It is home to various thematic recreational areas, including the Alluring Glow Park, Biggest Dinosaurs Park, Spectacular Art Park and Miraculous Magic Park.

Abdul Rahman Falaknaz, CEO of Falak Holding, said: “Dubai Garden Glow always captures a bigger share of your memories, allowing your soul to get soaked into the theme of beauty of this environment-friendly creative world as it gives an affirmation that the uniqueness of Dubai Garden Glow will further help to position Dubai as a top tourist destination of the world.”

Over at Glow Park, soft hues interlace with dominant colour palettes to create a bright and beautiful world of artistic installations. Developed around the theme of Back to Nature, more than 500 light installations were impressively created to liven up the park.

Prehistoric creatures

At Dinosaur Park, pre-historic giant creatures come back to life in dazzling display of lights. Visitors will see ancient reptiles such as Placerias and Dimetrodon and learn the evolution of dinosaurs from the middle Triassic era (about 230 million years ago) and the Jurassic period, to their extinction in the late Cretaceous era (66 million years ago).

Dubai Garden Glow said in a statement: “Dinosaur Park has always been our top draw for curious children and adults alike. We take visitors back through a journey, from the dawn of the dinosaurs. There are also ‘End of Era’ installations demonstrating how the dinosaurs became extinct and installations of more than 100 prehistoric creatures that move and roar. Dinosaur Park is not about instant gratification alone, it also whets your curiosity to explore the life and times of these magnificent creatures.”

Magical lights

The world of imagination will continue to run wild at the Magic Park, which is also a treasure trove of fascinating photo opportunities, where geometric forms create hypnotic optical effects. Visitors will surely have enough photos to post on social media as they create scenes where they stand next to world’s tallest building or run away from King Kong at Burj Al Arab, or escape a ferocious dinosaur attack.

Colours of life

The Art Park is also back. Created using recycled materials around the theme of Back to Nature, Art Park, is an attempt to drive home the message of conservation, according to Dubai Garden Glow management.

“Art Park is surrounded by wildlife installations made of used materials such as bottles, CDs and porcelain cups and plates. The Eco-friendly Art Park seamlessly stiches the different notes of happiness, cultural values, beliefs and identity – fused together to create an overall paradise of all colours of life,” Dubai Garden Glow added.
