An amusement park called “Island Beach” located on Burlington Island, opposite Bristol, was in operation until 1928 when fire destroyed much of it. Another in 1934 finished the operation completely. Steam boats regularly stopped at the park. The carousel was transported and reassembled in Seaside, N.J.
