The Rooversbroek Polder is a polder in the Dutch province of South Holland, in the municipality of Lisse. It is currently a popular hiking area.

The Lisserpoelpolder is drained in the years 1622-1624 with the help of two mills. In 1675 the polder was flooded after the Spaarndammerdijk near Halfweg broke through during a north-western storm. With great difficulty, the polder could be reclaimed because both the existing mills were in poor condition. Therefore, in March 1675 it is decided to build a new mill. So in 1676, about one kilometre south of the two old mills, a new screw mill is built. The Lisserpoelmolen.
