Erikslund and Fagernäs form a contiguous area located a few kilometers east of the city center, next to Svartbyträsket. The buildings are mixed with villas and small houses, apartment buildings, semi-detached houses and terraced houses and reflect the different building styles of the 20th century. The area has a preschool, primary school F-6 and a grocery store and pizzeria. Stureskolan secondary school and Björknäsgymnasiet are within walking or cycling distance. There are also green spaces, playgrounds and popular play areas, as well as forests with exercise trails and snowmobile trails.

Erikslund and Fagernäs, together with Norra Svartbyn, are subject to a new in-depth master plan. The proposals developed primarily seek to build on the area’s child-friendly and nature-oriented qualities by creating more meeting places and increased access to water environments and outdoor activities.

About the area

Erikslund began to be built in the early 1900s along the old road to Svartbyn (now Svartbyvägen). The oldest buildings are from the 1930s. In Fagernäs, houses were already built in the 1920s. Further development was slow and gradual, resulting in several architectural styles. In the early 1920s, Fagernäs got a new establishment, Goldkuhls Handelsträdgård, which sold vegetables such as white cabbage, carrots, Brussels sprouts and more. The business was then carried on by the same family (now the fourth generation) and now includes flowers, garden plants and accessories. Military history, an important part of Boden’s identity, is reflected in the area through a variety of remains associated with the Eastern Front, long one of the country’s most important strategic locations. Here are two of the city’s five listed artillery forts, Mjösjöfortet and Gammelängsfortet, both from the early 1900s. The facilities have been sealed for several years, but structures such as tank obstacles, bunkers, trenches and trenches remain in the terrain. From forbidden territory, the site has become a much-used recreational area. The new municipal plan contains proposals for how the military historical remains can be highlighted more and made available to the interested public.
