Lotus Isle, the “Million Dollar Pleasure Paradise” was a short-lived amusement park on Tomahawk Island. Meant to compete with Jantzen Beach, the park, opened in 1930, was mismanaged and plagued by misfortune. A 1933 fire destroyed virtually all traces of the park. From the small Lotus Isle Park on the site today you can still see pilings that carried the streetcar between there and Faloma on the mainland. The Faloma Market at N Marine Drive and Gantenbein Avenue may be the only reminder of the area’s name.
