What is the Love Lake of Dubai and Why is it so Famous?
Inaugurated on November 18, 2018, Love Lake is a man-made water body carved in an area of 550,000 square meters and comprises two huge heart-shaped interconnected lakes. It is touted to be so large that it can be viewed from space. This has been quoted to be a haven for couples, and they fly in from throughout the globe to spend some quiet time with each other on the banks of this beautifully designed lake. One thing that makes this lake all the more romantic is that it is located right in the middle of a desert.
As you near the entrance of this lake, you are greeted with a wooden sign board that has ‘Love Lake’ written on it. There are two entrances to this lake, and you can choose whichever suits your convenience. Here, along with the beautiful twin lakes entangled together for life, you also have some lush green lawns and scenic beauty which will add to your thrill. There are three rubber tracks that extend more than 7 kilometers, and the trees are arranged in a manner that spells Love when viewed from above.
The surroundings of the lake are dotted all over with wooden heart frames and signs and symbols of the heart-shaped lake. You just don’t have to walk and jog around the lake, but also can sit quietly near the water body on the comfortable seating facilities and cool resting areas which are crafted using eco-friendly materials.
What Can You Find Here Other than the Lake?
Though surrounded by sand, it is an oasis in the middle of a desert. You have an exotic collection of flowers, plants, and trees here which will mesmerize you with their colors and beauty. You will find the red begonia arranged in the shape of a heart and thousands of shrubs and more than 16,000 trees which include olives and mostly desert staple ghaf.
These wide varieties of plants, shrubs, and trees attract more than 150 species of birds towards them. You and your partner can spot eagles, ducks, swans, and falcons among many other birds that pay a small visit to this lake, making it one of the most romantic things to do in Dubai.
