Miracle Garden project opens at Dubailandon Feb 14, 2013
The Miracle Garden horticultural attraction at Dubailand developed by Akar Landscaping & Agriculture Company will open its doors today.
Spread over 721,000 ft2 of land, it contains more than 45 million flowers including an 800m-long flower wall which it claims will be the world's longest, as well as the world's biggest flower clock and a huge pyramid of flowers with a base area of 144m and a height of 10m.
Dubailand, which is owned by Dubai Properties Group, announced the signing of the deal to develop the attraction earlier this week. The pair hope that the attraction will bring in one million visitors a year.
Eng Abdel Nasser Y. Rahhal, general manager of Akar Landscaping Services said: “We are very proud to open Miracle Garden here in Dubai and we are confident that the well-established DUBAILAND district will serve as a great location for the project.
"We are pleased to be working with DPG on this project which we hope will increase tourist numbers to Dubai. In addition to the environmental benefits associated with this project, the Miracle Garden will provide visitors with ample outdoor recreational space and a number of retail outlets, making it an ideal family day out.”
Mohammed Al Habbai, CEO of Dubailand, added: “Miracle Garden is an impressive addition to the wide range of attractions already on offer in Dubailand. The inspiration and creativity from Akar is obvious in the final result and it is a great achievement to have this project operational and catering to millions of Dubai residents and tourists from around the world.”
A second phase of the project set to see new retail, restaurants, souveneir shops, plant nurseries and a multi-storey car park will start on site in the middle of the year.
