There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy rollerblading in Dordrecht. Practice your tricks at the Skatepark under the Zwijndrecht bridge or use the cycle paths in and around the Dordrecht city center. De Elzen, a spacious and quiet nature reserve, is also perfect for rollerblading and perfect for both beginners and advanced skaters. Two routes have been plotted, one of 10 kilometers (the blue route) straight through the polder and one of 20 (the red route) over the dikes, including along the Kop van 't Land and the Zuidendijk. The routes are connected and can be skated in two directions. If you park at De Viersprong you will see the signs automatically. In short, fun and sporty with the kids!
