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.

This is a very nice park on a hill with a lot of nooks and crannies. There is a small cave and a playground. It would be great for walking your dog or letting your kids run free in the summer.

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.
