Within walking distance of the city center are the Sveafältet and Lundagård districts, areas that emerged in the 1930s and 1960s to meet the need for staff housing for the Swedish Armed Forces and the Central Hospital. While Lundagård is characterized by slightly lower multi-storey buildings – many built between 1925 and 1940 – Sveafältet has multi-storey buildings of between 3 and 6 floors, some in red, some in yellow brick and some with plastered cement. A new addition to the properties is student housing built on behalf of the armed forces. Sveafältet/Lundagård is characterized by its proximity to the city’s range of shops, supermarkets, culture and leisure activities. At the same time, nature is within walking distance, with paths and light trails. There is a grocery store in the area and a handful of restaurants. Public transport is easy with bus routes to the city center and other residential areas. Sveafältet/Lundagård is today a neighborhood in transformation with upcoming investments in new apartments, spontaneous sports facilities and a new park. The vision also includes a new commuter train station.

  • 1. Proximity to the city center, to jobs, schools and public transport For residents in the area, it is close to the city center and easy to get to school/work by any means. Local bus connections are good and make it easy to commute to Luleå. Preschool is in the area and primary, secondary and high school are within cycling distance.
  • 2. lush and green Sveafältet/Lundagård is often perceived by residents as green with its large areas and birch trees. There are several different walking paths that connect to the forest, the Lule River and the Bodån river. In the coming years, new investments are planned in the area to increase its well-being and attractiveness, including a park with vegetable plots, a fruit grove, berry bushes and a new playground.
  • 3. leisure time It is close to both nature and cultural and leisure activities. The center includes a library, theater and cinema, as well as several exercise facilities. The armed forces regiments have several nice jogging trails that the public can use. Wherever you live in the area, you are within walking distance of the light trail, which becomes a ski trail in winter. The regimental area also houses the Defense Museum with Boden's art gallery and the county art gallery Havremagasinet.
  • 4. Newly built pre-school The Björkdungen preschool was built in 2019 and has six portals. The school has its own food preparation kitchen, workshops, carpentry and water play.
  • 5. church The St. John's Church (part of the Equmenia Church community) is housed in a large and charming pink wooden building that was formerly a soldier's home and an auction house. The parish offers an open community with activities for all ages. The premises are technically well-equipped and have a newly renovated kitchen, and can be rented for various events.

About the area

Sveafältet was once Kronan’s old horse paddock that stretched from today’s Drottninggatan to Coop Svea. Today it is more unclear how the area is demarcated, and residents and the Swedish Transport Administration may have slightly different views. A reminder of the time when the horse was an integral part of the defense – and played a crucial role in the construction of the fort – is today’s racetrack. The interest in horses has never disappeared in Boden, but only taken new forms. What everyone may not know is that the presence of the military laid the foundation for the city’s musical life. Military musicians often taught at the city’s music school and played in orchestras themselves. Several choirs were and still are active. The People’s House, built in 1966, provided a full-scale concert and theater venue (the Saga Theater) that is still in use.
