Dubai: Dubai Miracle Garden, which landed the Guinness World Records for featuring the world's largest floral installation, is now officially open to the public, and visitors can expect to enjoy a number of new eye-popping floral replicas and a blast of sunflowers to boot.
Among those that have just been added to the newly renovated park is a 12-metre-high teddy bear covered in blooms.
The latest edition, with its new theme "Sunflower Lovers," now features 50 million plants, including 120 flower varieties, spread over an area of 70,000 square metres.
There are also a number of floral replicas of animals, including parrots, kangaroos, butterflies and giant ants.
Visitors can expect to walk along paths lined with giant swans, as well.
Cartoon lovers won’t get disappointed, either, as the garden also showcases some of the most loved characters. And for the first time, visitors can watch 3D mapping videos on a flower screen or enjoy live shows in a new ampitheatre.
There are numerous hammocks to sit in the garden, as well, providing perfect spots to rest those weary legs after hours of sightseeing in the park.
Located in Al Barsha South 3, the garden opened its doors on November 7.
