This park was built up in the 1920's and is located by the cities lake. It is a nice enough park and has Reykjavik harbour and the sea as a backdrop, so it is a fairly picturesque park in that respect.

Open area which allows wind to strike, so recommend like most outings here to grab a scarf. Multiple Sculptures, Animals, Pretty Town View across the lake, all enjoyable without many patrons.
