“More than meets the eye”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Laugardalur is a lovely place in the heart of Reykjavik. On first sight it hosts a family entertainment park and a small zoo for younger children. It also has an indoor skating ring and thermal pools (natural for show and contemporary for swimming). There is a sport center, spa, resturants and art galleries in the area. I have enjoyed all of these places and activities at different times with my family but what we enjoy most these days is jogging or cycling the paths, a green haven in the middle of the city.

“Lovely spot for children”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

We visited the park several times as we stayed in a guesthouse nearby. The park is lovely and well maintained. It is not a touristy place and is used mostly by locals. Botanical garden (free entry) is lovely, and we loved Cafe Flora. There is also a little zoo and a nice playground (paid entrance), my young son enjoyed them. It is a destination on its own as there are so many other amazing things to see in Iceland, but a pleasant place to visit if you have some free time or stay nearby

Wonderful use of geothermal heated water.
Great way to get involved with the local custom of community swimming and hot tub relaxing.

“Huge park”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a huge park on the outskirts of Reykjavik that houses some sports complexes as well as the botanical gardens (free admission) and a small zoo/amusement park. There is a lovely cafe in the botanical gardens as well.
