Waterrijk Oesterdam's history

It all started in 1979 with the construction of the Oesterdam. This dam is one of the most well-known Delta Works in Zeeland, its goal being to divide the Zeeland and South Holland waters in order to improve fresh water management and shipping in these waters. The construction of the Oesterdam contributed to the creation of the Zoommeer, a freshwater lake with a special story behind it. This lake is located on the site that once housed the historical city of Reimerswaal. The city's history is steeped in turmoil, and it was burned during the Eighty Years' War after being taken by the Geuzen. After this event, several attempts were made to rebuild the city, but Reimerwaal was eventually swallowed up by the waves and never reconstructed. The Oesterdam was constructed in phases, and in 1989 the new connection was officially opened by the Queen's Commissioner. In 1991, the Speelmansplaten were created, the nature and recreation area on which Waterrijk Oesterdam was built. The process of turning the Speelmansplaten at the Oesterdam into a full-fledged recreational area commenced in 2001. It involved some clear goals which have since then been successfully achieved: preparing the terrain for recreational accommodation by building luxurious water villas, as well as rearranging the terrain with a focus on catering, water sports and outdoor events.
