Al Ain city (literally The Spring), also known as the Garden City due to its greenery, is the second largest city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the fourth largest city in the United Arab Emirates. With a population of 374,000, it is located approximately 160 km east of the capital Abu Dhabi and about 120 km south of Dubai.
Contrary to the sprawling arid Gulf desert, Al Ain is an oasis and attracts visitors throughout the year to witness its pleasing surroundings. Numerous lush parks and gardens have made Al Ain the "Garden City of the Gulf. The most beautiful park in town is the Paradise Garden that originally opened in 2010 in a 7,000 square meter space. At the time, there were 2,426 flower baskets with plants imported from countries around the world, including Italy, Uganda, the US and Japan. The garden was enlarged in 2011 and now occupies an area of 21,000 square meters and has over 2.4 Km of corridors and walkways. It now has 2,965 flower baskets, instead of the previous 2,426 flower baskets, in addition to flower pyramids. A theatre and a meeting area have also been added to the park. The garden achieved a Guinness world record for the most hanging flower baskets in one park.
