The Rijkerswoerdse Plassen ('Rijkerswoerdse Lakes') recreation area, located in Elst on the border of Arnhem South, is the perfect place for a day out. It's ideal for swimming, fishing, surfing, diving, canoeing, or just plain relaxing. There are also plenty of options for hikers, cyclists, golfers and mini-golfers. Kids will have a great time at the water chute, the playground or the pontoon. The Rijkerswoerdse Plassen is open all year-round and admission is free. Open from 6am to 10pm daily. Dogs not permitted.
