A lovely park in Reykjavik for some ncie paths to walk on. Playground at one end (but some playthings damaged (and the trampoline dangerous as my daughter got her foot / shoe stuck in a hole)

Lovely small view of local animals - Icelandic horses and a beautiful white arctic fox. Local swimming too. Very restful to walk in the park

The park is good for a refreshing walk, much like Reykjavik itself. There's not much vegetation, etc. but the view of the houses across the water is lovely. Watch out for the seagulls near the parliament buildings, as they are expecting a handout. You'll see some norther waterfowl along with Canada geese and mallards.

The zoo and family park is a great place to bring the kids, particularly the young ones. There is a trampalene and giant bubble to jump on, a large playground set, motorized and nonmotorized mini cars to drive and much more. Not a wide selection of animals at the zoo, just the basic farm animals, seals, a reindeer.

Was staying in the Kex Hotel nearby, saw this on a map and thought it was worth a look!

Entry was about 5,000 Icelandic Krona or US$5. Per the other posters here can confirm it looked to be almost all locals in attendance - basically a regular swimming pool. Facilities include a sauna, free lockers (keys have an elastic band attached to put around your arm - nice touch), showers etc.

The complex outside (inside was closed in summer?) has a 50m pool with 8+ lanes at around 25-27 degrees celsius, then there's a children's pool with waterslide, and one or two hot pools (38 degrees celsius). Fairly crowded but not too much.

All in all a nice place to spend a couple of hours and see how some Icelandic people go about their leisure!
