Al Ain Paradise, World's Most Hanging Flower Baskets

Al Ain Paradise, is a public garden holding the world record for the most hanging flower baskets (2,968) and represents the latest in landscaping and irrigation technology. It was awarded the Guinness World Records achievement on the 20th of March 2010. It is located at Zakher Area of Sweifi District, a 15-minute drive from Al Ain Town Center, in UAE. The gardens originally opened in 2010 in a 7,000 square-meter space on Nahyan Al Awal Street at the Zakher roundabout.  But it has increased to 21,000 square-meters.


Vertical landscaping is always a challenge, especially in this climate where proper controlled irrigation is vital for the living plants.

In addition to the display of living plants, which have to survive a season lasting seven months, there is a model of the Eiffel Tower and several intriguing sculptures.

The heart arches represent the three municipalities of Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and the Western Region).
