Hearts will be set a-flutter when the UAE’s latest attraction opens its gates – a butterfly park featuring colourful species from all over the world.

Set to open in two weeks, it’s based at Miracle Gardens, where attractions have included a house, a UAE flag and a huge clock, each made using thousands of colourful blooms.

Butterflies live for just 14 to 26 days, and a breeding centre in Al Ain will provide a constant supply of pupae. They’ll be housed inside nine-custom-built domes at the park, thought to be the second-largest of its kind after Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur Butterfly Park, according to Miracle Gardens’ developer, Akar Landscaping Services and Agriculture.

The centre has been built at a cost of Dhs35 million and is part of the ambitious Dubai Safari scheme, which will eventually include a golf course.

INFO: 9am-9pm Sun-Thu, 9am-11pm Fri-Sat. Entry to Miracle Gardens Dhs30 (free for under-threes); separate fee to enter the butterfly park, amount to be confirmed); North West Quadrant, Arabian Ranches interchange, Sheikh Zayed Rd, Dubai, 04 422 8902, info@dubaimiraclegarden.com, www.dubaimiraclegarden.com
