In upholding its religious values and principles, the Dubai government has offered residents and city guests various platforms and projects to learn more about Islamic culture and the stories of miracles in the Quran which are well-loved by Emiratis and the Arab people from all over the world.
This initiative sill falls within the national government’s thrust to promote tolerance and unity among the people in various emirates in the country, such as here in Dubai.
Al Quran Park Opens to Public, Free Entry for All
The ‘Al Quran Park’ has officially been opened in Dubai’s Al Khawaneej area on March 29.
The Dubai Municipality shared this announcement via its official Twitter Page, also noting that the Quranic Park will be free of charge for all guests who would like to visit.
The park aims to bridge the gap in knowledge and cultural communication with various cultures, religions, and nationalities to showcase the cultural achievements of Islam notably in the field of plant ecology.
Among the many plants mentioned in the Holy Quran include fig, wheat, ginger, pumpkin, pomegranate, olive, corn, leek, garlic, onion, lentil, barley, watermelon, tamarind, seders, vineyards, bananas, cucumbers, and basil.
According to the report, the 60-hectare park will feature all available plants mentioned in the Quran, along with beautiful facilities such as an attractive main entrance, an administration building, an Islamic garden, children’s play areas, an Umrah corner, an open area theatre, spaces for showing the miracles of the Quran, fountains, lavatories, a glass building, a desert garden, a palm oasis, a lake, a running track, a cycling track, and a sandy walking path.

The park will be among the many unique destinations locals and guests in Dubai can visit from now on. It’s a great way to commune with nature and at the same time discover a deeper layer of understanding of the UAE’s cultural assets and religious identity as guided by the Quran.
You might think that it’s probably going to be the same as regular guided tours in mosques elsewhere, but the park will not only feature plants mentioned in the Holy Quran, but more importantly the wonderful miracles expressed by Allah to enrich the people’s faith, but presented through visually stunning technology for a more unique and multi-sensorial experience using themes that are very close to the heart of the people in the Arab world.
