Situated within the precincts of Zabeel Park and part of the Glow Garden is another popular attraction - the Dinosaur Park. With animatronic dinosaur models to scale and a resemblance strikingly similar to those that walked the earth millions of years ago, the added feature of the Dinosaur Park is the biggest hit with children and families. Not only are they set in enclosures similar to the ones in “Jurassic Park”, but some of them also walk about and provide ample amazement and brilliant photo opportunities.

Dubai Garden Glow Reviews

After visiting Dubai Frame we walk to the glow garden. It is very near. Visit the park in the dark. It is magical. Everything is shining and full of colors. If you have kids or even teenagers they would love it.

Martina P, TripAdvisor, February 2020

The Dubai Garden Glow is an amazing place with a park theme dedicated to light displays. The ticket costing AED 110 also includes the Dinosaur Park & Ice Park. One can also include the magic park for additional AED 30. The dinosaur park is alright & good for kids. The ice park is small with limited exhibits but world a visit. The main highlight however is the glow garden. The various displays & light shows just amazes you. Our 2 year old daughter just enjoyed the various themes around cartoon characters.
