Park Rules

The garden is both a botanic resource and public park that is protected by Icelandic law.

It is strongly prohibited to damage plants or take seeds and please do not interfere with the plant labels.

Much effort goes into maintaining the garden, so we ask that you kindly refrain from walking on the garden beds. During the winter please use the ploughed paths.

Many plants have thorns and may cause rash if touched and some plants are poisonous. Please contact staff or 112 if accidental ingestion occurs.

The garden is intended as showcase of plants for the peaceful enjoyment of all visitors. When the gates are locked, the garden is to be vacated.

In order to protect the garden beds, ball games and frisbee discs are prohibited inside the garden.

Cycling and the use of scooters and skateboards are not permitted in the park. Bicycle parking is provided at each entrance.

Dogs are permitted in the park but must be kept on a leash at all times. Please ensure you clean up after your pet and ensure they do not damage the garden beds.
