    Another creativity of Dubai.
    Another creativity of Dubai. Back home in Sri Lanka we have a culture to for this lanterns and exabits in streets and parks for the month of May. Despite, this is another level. Creativity, beauty, concept, attractiveness is amazing. This is with another 3 more parks which are Art, Dinosaur and Magic. 3 parks are included in the tickets and for the Magic park you will have to pay extra. I don't really recommend as I felt it's not worth it and by the time you finish other 3 you are already very tired. But another must see place in UAE.

    Wonderfully done if with kids then a must!!!
    It’s all beautiful decorated lights and pathways my little one was 5months old when I visited she thoroughly enjoyed it and cried only to when we got out of there. My eldest is 7, for her there was a dinosaur park next to it. For her there were all informations written near the mock ups she was reading and trying to memorize it all. We enjoyed there with our girls I’m sure everyone else would too

    Interesting park
    A very nice park. One part is the dinosaurs park. Another part is a collection of weird rooms and another part is the glow itself with plenty of images. The parking is paid and the price little high

    Glow garden and dinosaur park
    This is a combination of three parks: glow garden, dinosaur park and magic park. Starting with dinosaur park, this is fairly basic and would be more exciting for young childrens. Glow garden is beautiful but should be visited post sunset, more like the way cities are in India during diwali. Magic park is more exciting, it is similar to museum of illusions. In magic park, there are lot of concept rooms in which one can take interesting pictures. Overall, if you are visiting dubai and have some additional time, one can visit this park.

    A nice evening getaway (except the Magic show)
    We went for a simple evening break with our little kiddo with all the facilities living upto our expectations. Glow garden & Dino park were the highlights with Magic show/Illusion area being a big disappointment. Our advise: Buy tickets online for glow garden and Dino and enjoy your visit. Save the money on Magic show area and instead go to Museum of Illusions (Creek) which is far better than the one at Glow garden. Typical time to complete: A leisure walk of 2-3 hours

    Lights are magical! Rest is nothing more then okay.
    We arrived around five thirty. Did the magic show first, okay but really nothing special. Then we walked around the dinosaurs. Nice setup, kidliked it. Then we had to wait till darkness because we really wanted to see the lights at dark. Waiting was worth it! The light show was great!

    Nice
    Very nice. It is worth visiting, especially if you have children. It's like a fairy tale world. If you already have a ticket bought online, it can be reached from Dubai Frame, crossing through Zabeel Park and over a footbridge that crosses the road. Also here is a park with dinosaurs, made (probably...) realistically. There are several kiosks and small terraces where you can drink something (of course, without alcohol) or have a snack. But beware of merchants! Some, seeing you as a foreign tourist, ask for higher prices for juice/snacks. They asked me 20AED for a juice that I bought for 10AED from a kiosk located 150m away. Quite crowded, many families with children, especially locals.

    Best hangout place for kids
    Dubai Garden Glow is a unique theme park and the largest glow-in-the-dark garden famous for its vibrant themes .We had a wonderful time at the Dubai garden glow.My son enjoyed the dinosaur park very much. The entire experience was great and they have plenty of restaurants. This is a must visit place with kids during the winter. I highly recommend

    Worth a visit
    An interesting walk with some fun things to see. The tickets are the same price at the gate and online, 70AED for dinosaurs+lights but be prepared to insist on this ticket or you will be charged 115AED including the magic room. The magic room is just not as interesting as the rest of the park. Avoid the pushy food and beverage vendors, especially at the front of the park. If you're travelling, this attraction is probably not high on your list, but if you're local it's worthwhile.

    Ok for kids.
    I was a little disappointed with these gardens. We got persuaded to pay extra and do the magic room/area. This is basically an illusion set of set ups. If you’ve already done that elsewhere then I wouldn’t bother doing it. The garden itself is large-ish but I found the lights quite tacky. I was expecting something like the Kew Gardens in the UK at Christmas but this wasn’t that. There were some lovely animals lite up which was the best bit. I think the taxis outside (if they aren’t the usual cream taxis) are a rip off. If you have kids upto the age of 5-ish then it’s decent otherwise don’t bother.

The glow garden consists of 3 separate attractions, the illuminated glow park, the dino park, and the magic park. The glow Park and Dino Park are covered, and the magic park is under a separate add-on ticket. When purchasing the tickets, the seller automatically added the additional magic park ticket, which I didn't really need.

The Dubai glow park is fairly reasonably priced, although it doesn't have the same polished finish as Dubai's premium attractions.

Firstly, they need to deal with the mosquitoes. There are clouds of mosquitoes present, which come out in force once it gets dark (when you naturally visit the glow park). There are large bodies of standing water here, paradise for mosquitoes, and it really impacts the enjoyment of the place - would strongly recommend wearing repellent if visiting!

The dino park is fun, automated life size dinosaurs, children will enjoy this. Best visited before it gets dark, so go there first.

Once it started to get dark, the glow park comes alive. Many illuminated displays, photo opportunities, and bonus views of the impressive One Zabeel building!

Lastly is the magic park. In my opinion, this is the least impressive of the attractions. Basically, it's a series of back painted displays for photo opportunities. Loads of people pushing to get their Instagram photos.

Food options are pretty average and generic, too, although it lends itself to a picnic, so it is probably better to bring snacks.

My advice is to take snacks and mosquito repellent and skip magic park.

We were literally eaten by mosquitos there tonight! Also, the cafes hustlers were so aggressive, one almost hit our toddler in the face with a menu! Huge waste of time and money. What a disappointment

What an absolute rip off, please DO NOT waste your money!!!

We arrived yesterday (4/3/2024) just before 9pm. We paid 385 aed (£87) to enter all parks here. The staff member told us "we're open until 11pm, you'll have plenty of time to see everything!". Even on the website it says they're open until 11pm.

So, Imagine our surprise when we're walking around at 10:06pm and all the lights go off one section at a time!

Left navigating our way out in the dark. Not only is this unsafe, but also a massive waste of money. I feel robbed!

Please do not waste your time or money, it is a total rip off.

A really nice evening for families. I went solo and did enjoy it but it's difficult taking selfies all the time. Also, if you get the full ticket, it includes the magic park, which has some great optical illusion rooms. I had to get one of the staff to take loads of pictures, which she did happily. Thank you for that. There's quite a few food carts as well in case you need something to eat. Worth a visit

A beautiful light display situated in the glow park and dinosaur park. If you enjoy Christmas lights then put it on your list of thingsto do in Dubai.
