The Dubai Miracle Garden is a flower garden located in the district of Dubailand, Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The garden was launched on Valentine's Day in 2013. The garden occupies over 72,000 square metres (780,000 sq ft), making it the world's largest natural flower garden featuring over 109 million flowers planted.

In April 2015, the garden was awarded the Moselle Award for New Garden Experiences of the year by the Garden Tourism Award 2015.

The conception of the first miracle garden project was formed under the agreement between Dubailand and the Dubai Properties Group destination.

The project development was done under agreement with Akar Landscaping and Agriculture Company, led by Jordanian businessman Abdel Naser Rahhal. The cost of the project was an estimate of AED 40 million ($11 million).

Phase one of the project was completed and opened in February 2013 which consisted of 21,000 sq. ft. outdoor facility including vertical and horizontal landscaping design where each of them have their own design.

The development of phase one took 2 months and 400 workers.

Phase two of the project was initiated on mid-June 2013 and was completed on October 2013 where it involved the 70 percent expansion of the 21,000 sq ft and construction of the 850,000 sq ft multistory car park, which now increased the total area of the garden to 2 million sq ft.

Phase two development also included the addition of the floral clock, the butterfly garden, retail stores and mosques.

The Dubai Miracle Garden operates from October to April and remains closed from June to September due to high temperatures with an average of 40 °C (104 °F), which is not conducive for flower viewing.

The flowers are maintained by re-use of waste water through drip irrigation method with an average amount of 757,082 litres (166,535 imperial gallons; 200,000 US gallons) of water per day.

In 2015 Dubai Miracle Garden opened the Dubai Butterfly Garden, the world’s largest and the region’s first indoor butterfly garden and sanctuary for over 15,000 butterflies from 26 species.

Other attractions in the park include a floral clock, peacocks, a butterfly park, and an aromatic garden.
A scene of a Bollywood movie Hamari Adhuri Kahani, starring Emraan Hashmi and Vidya Balan, was shot in the garden and the director, Mohit Suri added that though Dubai was generally known for its high-tech buildings and modern landscapes, he wanted to romanticise it and show its softer side.
