Böda kronopark

Böda kronopark is a Kronopark and currently an Ekopark on Öland, Sweden, north of the village of Böda.[1] It has 6000 hectares of mainly coniferous forest and takes up most of the northern part of Öland, except for the northwestern tip. Its eastern boundary is the Baltic Sea, with a ten-kilometer long sandy beach. The park was a royal hunting domain and then became part of the Domänverket. In 2006 the park became an Ekopark, meaning a park run by a forestry company (in this case Sveaskog), comparable to a nature reserve but with fewer regulations and allowing for the harvesting of lumber.
