Reykjavik Botanical Garden - Review
The main attraction in the Laugarnesvegur area east of the city, this botanical garden focusing on research and education has about 5000 plant species represented in regionally thematic collections: Iceland's flora; perennial foreign plants; roses; forest floor plants; trees; rock garden and a gourmet garden. It’s a lovely place for a leisurely stroll. Birders will also appreciate the garden for its thriving avian population. Additionally the Cafe Flora here is a very cute place to grab a bite, where small musical performances and book readings are occasionally organised. The whole place is an especially charming hangout at christmas time.

Reykjavik Botanical Garden, Reykjavik Reviews
Nice setting to unplug and relax: we enjoyed a calm walk across the botanical garden and the nearby zoo. It’s a very green area with flowers and animals. Worth having a look. Not easily reachable though without a car: accessibility from Reykjavík could be improved.
Beautiful park / garden. It‘s quite small so you can pretty much see everything it has to offer in less than an hour. There is also a small restaurant / cafe for refreshments and free restrooms.
Its a small garden but you can't beat the price. Also what's there is very well done and its definitely worth a visit.. there are more than just flowers to see :)
All cities benefit from having as many green spaces as possible and the Botanical Gardens in Laugarsdalur is a perfect example of a beautifully composed city park. Well landscaped with a number of ponds, ornate bridges and a wide array of arboreal displays and flower beds, a stroll around these grounds is a perfect escape from the relative bustle and busyness elsewhere. A charming cafe is also available.
Very interesting place, did not have time to explore all. Neat and well kept. Cafe with ok lunch. No indoor/tropical section only natives, rock gardens and some systematic areas and arboretum. Young and growing!
