Boblo Island Amusement Park, aerial view. The SS Ste. Clair Boblo steamer arrives at the popular amusement park, which featured an abundance of rides, and a Dance Pavillion designed by John Scott. Boblo Island operated from 1898 until it suddenly closed on September 30, 1993; its amusement rides were sold in 1994. The park was located on Bois Blanc Island, above the mouth of the Detroit River opposite Amherstburg. The island has been transformed into a private community of upscale homes and condos.
