Dubai Garden Glow is the newly launched attraction in the city. On December 23, Dubai Municipality unveiled the AED30 million ‘Dubai Garden Glow’ project in Zabeel Park. It is an amusement complex and edutainment center equipped with a sparkling garden that glitters in the evening.
This is perhaps one of the most interesting parks in the city these days and is worth a visit; the “glow-in-the-dark park” presents a wonderland that comes alive at night! It is full of cool sculptures of enchanted creatures with mechanics and light installations that illuminate after the sun sets and provide the magic in the heart of the Dubai.
Garden Glow is a uniquely themed edutainment park featuring environment-friendly architecture with various structures created with recyclable products and inspired by wonders across the globe; the whole garden is an enchanting light show where plants, trees and animals come alive, using the latest technology just like the Light Talking Tree, for example.
“Entering the garden is like stepping into a fairytale […],” says The Filipino Times. Throughout the whole garden in the park are a fairy land of lights, colors and artifacts that light up to show the glowing garden for an awe-inspiring walk-through to be enjoyed by the entire family. The venue features other attractions within the park such as live street performances, laser and stage shows, and much more, by international, regional, and local performers.

In addition, children also have a dedicated area where they can enjoy ‘learning with fun’ from various games and activities at the site. To satisfy your appetite, cuisine delicacies are also served there at the food pavilion.
The inauguration of the Dubai Garden Glow, which is an “Art by Day – Glow by Night” attraction, was held by Shaikh Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum at the park; the attraction will offer an art and entertainment experience to visitors until either April or Ramadan 2016.
Dubbed ‘the largest themed garden in the world’, Dubai Garden Glow is an attraction spread across 40 acres, with 32 installations made by 150 artists. The project has required 200,000 man-hours to complete with artisans recruited across the globe to aid in Dubai’s attempt at another Guinness World Record and has incorporated the green message in its development directly supporting the community recycling efforts.
The way to design and then produce such a project by introducing postconsumer recycled content gives an environmental message in a straightforward way: this world’s first unique theme garden shows that going green can even lead to the making of artistic masterpieces, with all the artwork made from recyclable materials, said Hussain Lootah, director general of Dubai Municipality.
According to ‘whatson.ae,’ visitors will not want to miss the replicas of the Grand Sheikh Zayed Mosque that’s crafted from 90,000 porcelain cups, plates and spoons; in addition, be sure to see the sight of the Burj Khalifa replica made from 330,000 small medicine bottles filled with colored water.
Other works worth visiting are the replicates of the famous tulips of the Netherlands, the Panda Paradise, Dino Camp and Candy Land, among other things.
Dubai Garden Glow will engage and inspire visitors to come check out the site completely made up with recycled materials and utilizing energy-saving string of lights that are illuminated by low-watt bulbs to create this project, tells The National; this is “reinforcing Dubai’s commitment towards using recycled products and reducing carbon footprint.”
