The Green Planet

The Green Planet located at CityWalk, is Dubai’s first bio-dome that recreates the enchanting world of a tropical forest with its rich biodiversity of over 3,000 plants and animals. The centerpiece is the largest indoor man-made and life-sustaining tree, at 25 M in height. Visitors to The Green Planet explore various elements of a tropical rain forest as they traverse different levels within the tree canopy. As the first bio-dome of its kind in the region, The Green Planet has become a must-visit attraction for residents and tourists alike.

As a living environment serving as home to thousands of species of tropical plants, mammals, insects and fish, a balanced approach between the use of natural daylight and supplemental artificial light was crucial to the success of the project.

Designed to embrace the principles of sustainability, The Green Planet is LEED Certified and fully compliant with the Dubai Municipality Green Building Regulations.
