There is a free form pool next to the outdoor 50m pool, it's about 30m long and, if quiet, is good for drills. It's warmer than the 50m pool. Various hotpots are alongside the outdoor pool at varying temperatures to relax in after a training session. It also has hot pots, Jacuzzi, thermal steam bath and an 86-meter-long water slide for young and old. One can also get a massage (www.lauganudd.is).
This facility is situated in Laugardalur valley, the center for athletics and recreation in Reykjavík. The area surrounding the pool has paths good for jogging and walking. In winter there are paths for cross-country skiing. A short distance from the pool is the Botanical Garden where one can see numerous plants and flowers while enjoying an especially peaceful atmosphere. Nearby is the Farm Zoo which everyone staying in Reykjavík should visit. On display are Icelandic pets and a variety of wild animals. Laugardalslaug has a cafeteria where you can get some warm and cold drinks, cakes and sandwiches.
