Mine City Park

The Mine City Park is built on the border between the city and the mine so that no one will be forced to live directly next to the industrial fence.

Kiruna Municipality and LKAB are working together creating a Gruvstadspark, Mine City Park in the first area to be affected by the deformations due to mining.
The park is to function as a buffer zone between the city and the mine so that no one will be forced to live immediately adjacent the industrial fencing.

The park will be a year-round recreational area with playgrounds, a skating-rink in the winter and grazing sheep in the summer. This way the public will have access to the area even after the houses are gone and no one will have to live next to the industrial fence. As the mine area is growing, the park will move closer towards the city.

The first part of the Mine City Park (in Iggesundsparken) was inaugurated on Sep, 14, 2011.

An agreement regarding the second part of the Mine City Park was signed by Kiruna municipality and LKAB on June 14, 2014.
