Its enormous area and equivocality in the Miracle Garden name created a lot of names for this park: Flower Park, Flower Garden, Miracle Garden, Flower City and many others.
The park is located in the southeastern part of Dubai on the territory of DubaiLand in the area of Al Barsha South. Currently, this area is under construction, and due to the lack of the significant number of people living here, you won’t find a lot of public transportation options. Nevertheless, keeping in mind the high level of popularity, the Miracle Garden is connected with the Mall of the Emirates with the bus route #105. This route offers only two main stops, so they won’t stop in the middle of the way in order to collect someone.
Below you can see a satellite map that shows the exact location of the Miracle Garden relatively to other areas of Dubai:
The Miracle Garden has the shape of a circle and is surrounded with a verdant hedge made from tall-growing bushes. There are many buildings and several parking places located behind the hedge. The entrance to the park is located in the northwestern part of it right opposite to the road.
Right in the middle of the park one can find a portrait of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. It made from 1000 flowers and surrounded with various compositions in two giant circles. Here you can find 18-meter duplicate of the tallest skyscraper in the world Burj Khalifa with the waterfall from flowers. Also here are located an upturned house and cue cars full of flowers.
