Prins Alexanderpolder

Large parts of Prins Alexander lie in the Prins Alexanderpolder. This polder was reclaimed from peat fen near the river Rotte, north east of the city. In total 14 peat fens were laid dry. The fens were drained between 1865 and 1874, resulting in 2,660 acres of farmland. The polder was named after Prince Alexander of the Netherlands (1851-1884).
