In the Spotlight // Boblo Island

Bois Blanc means “White Woods,” a name derived from the many birch and beech trees in the area. In large part because many Detroiters could not pronounce Bois Blanc Island as the French could (they often mumbled the name – “Boys Blank”), the Canadian government officially changed the Island’s name to “BobLo” in 1949. Known regionally as the former home of the BobLoIsland Amusement Park until its closure in 1993 after 95 years of operation, BobLo Island has recently been developed into a 240 acre private residential community.

Today’s BobLo Island offers one-of-a-kind single family homes, townhomes, and a condominium development, many offering stunning riverfront views tucked away among mature trees.  Less than a five minute private ferry ride away, which runs every 20 minutes, on the hour 24/7, 365 days per year – one can enjoy BobLo’s white sand beaches, full service marina, picturesque nature trails, The BobLo Island Beach House Restaurant, Captain Bob‘s Island Ice Cream and Coffee Cabin, South Beach Water Sports and so much more!

From its historic 57 foot lighthouse to its indoor dance pavilion, BobLo is an Island rich in not only its history, but its varied natural habitats as well. Home to hundreds of unique tree, plant and animal species, the development of the island remains ‘environmentally friendly,’ –  ensuring that this diverse ecology remains unspoiled for generations to enjoy.

A unique blend of old and new – BobLo Island offers an everyday life of extraordinary living.

In the Spotlight // Parks Canada, Fort Malden Historic Site

Bastion of the Detroit River – For 200 years, fortifications at Fort Malden have witnessed and participated in the struggles which helped forge a new nation out of the North American wilderness. An army garrison, British Indian Department post, dockyard for the Upper Great Lakes and the meeting place for Chief Tecumseh and British General Brock – the fort has been all these.

The first post known as Fort Amherstburg constructed in 1796 near the mouth of the Detroit River where it empties into Lake Erie. This post was the headquarters for the British forces in southwestern Upper Canada during the War of 1812. Fort Malden was erected after the war and reinforced in 1838-40 after it served once again as a centre for the British defense during the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837-38.

Today, Fort Malden preserves elements of the second fort built by the British on the eastern bank of the Detoit River to defend the Canadian border from American attack in the first half of the 19th century.

Real and inspiring possibilities await you as you enter Fort Malden National Historic Site. Whether you are looking to take in the beautiful scenery along the Detroit River or venturing into the fort for an authentic 19th century experience, we have something for everyone.
