A small public park, tucked away in the lava at the heart of Hafnarfjördur. The park is known for being a home of Elves and Hidden people. Juring the summer and some sunny days the Little Elf store is open for souvenir and some refreshments.

Small but very lovely park. We had a morning stroll here and it felt great. It's unusual and beautiful park. The Elf Garden is closed on Mondays. Nothing spectacular but if you are in the area, it's worth the stop.

From what I saw it was just a little park and I don't remember seeing any stores. There are stores along the waterfront so maybe you can find a gift shop down there.
