Knardijk - Vogelweg

Knardijk is an inner dyke which acts as a land division line between East and South Flevoland. Originally constructed as the southern outer dyke of the still-to-be drained East Flevoland polder, it formed the first phase (1957) of the larger Flevoland polder reclamation project. South Flevoland however was constructed considerably later (1968), which left Knardijk as a fully-fledged first defence outer dyke for the duration. At the time, it was the border between the new land and the outer water mass in the IJsselmeerā€™s southern zone. The Knardijk dyke derived its name from the former shallows in the Zuiderzee known as the Knar.
