[Proj] How I assign Projection to shapefiles, so that they fit right on google map

"SWEREF99 18 00" is EPSG:3011.
Google Map uses the CRS that EPSG calls "WGS 84 / Pseudo-Mercator", which is EPSG:3857.
So, using ogr2ogr, I think you can convert your park.shp file into a googlepark.shp 
by the command

> ogr2ogr -t_srs EPSG:3857 -s_srs EPSG:3011 googlepark.shp park.shp 

But I haven't tried it. 
(I think you could omit the "-s_srs EPSG:3011" from the command if you 
 had a park.prj file, which would tell ogr2ogr the CRS of the park.shp.
 But it seems you don't have any park.prj file.)
