Then, a nice family park.
Now, a private island resort.
Bois Blanc is known regionally as the former home of the Boblo Island Amusement Park, which began operation in 1898 and closed on September 30, 1993. The Nightmare, Falling Star, Wild Mouse (ride), Sky Streak and Screamer were the signature rides.
For more than 85 years, the park was serviced by the SS Ste. Clair and the SS Columbia. The Boblo Island Amusement Park was famous for those two steamers, which went between Detroit and the island.
The island is currently being developed as Boblo Island and Marina Resort Community by Amicone Properties Limited. Boblo Island now has a community of homes and condominiums. The island is served by a private ferry.
