Can't do much there as the Lake is very close to the cave.  Not much  "cushion" between the two in that area.  I would, however, like for the entrance to Lost River to be moved to inside Fireman's Landing.  The entrance/exit boardwalk could go along the faux rock wall.
I am not sure if I understand your idea.  Do you mean to run the walkway around the back of the lake?

Yes, I believe that is what he means.

Again, if we are calling this Fireman's Landing, there should be a boat aspect to the area.  I know it would take license with Ozarks history, but some sort of fire boat sitting in the lake, with fountains spraying from it might be an interesting addition.  I don't know that it needs to be a ride, but it could be a cool fountain feature.  Maybe it could even do a dancing fountain show at set times throughout the day.  Light it up at night for a light and water show.

With enough viewing area, something like this could create a "mist-curtain" for a nightly projection presentation of the Bald Knobber history and tie the firefighter theme to FitH.

Wow History Buff. That is a very nice idea! Kinda like the CC show Ignite the Night or Branson Landing's water and fire show. I also like the boat idea. I think anything would be nice there, as long as nothing collapses and nobody gets hurt. I still also like my idea of some paddle boats, like the swan boats that other parks have, but maybe something besides swans. Maybe something like ducks, dogs, or water buffalo. As long as they find a way to make it popular and get people over there.

I like the paddle boat idea...it would be great exercise and very relaxing. How could it be themed? Would there be issues getting insurance for an "attraction" like that? How many boats could fit on the lake at one time? Would something like this even be feasible Swoosh?

It could be a duck, dog, cowboy, water buffalo theme, or some other theme like that.

I am OK with most everything folks are describing, but think the in park ads over the piped in music idea really are not what I want to experiece. Bummed out on that one. I will have to restrain my comments until I can get up to the park and hear it for myself. I can say this...if you don't like something, COMPLAIN. Tell any and all citizens how you feel...if you see survey folks as you are headed to the marketplace, or ask someone to have a manager come speak to you, if enough folks do this you will see results.

Agreed! Talk does get around fast, but sometimes you need to tell more than 2 people.

As for the "boats" if you move the entrance to Lost River by the FL restrooms you could do a returned of the ride and give it a purpose. 

I like the idea of a fountain show on Lake Silver.  I'm visualizing what they do at Dollywood for their special effects tree on their pond at Christmas.  We could even move our tree there to clear out some of the traffic on the square. 

Ooh!  They could put a skating rink where the tree usually is. 👍

Could you strap a couple of old Ray Johnson blades on a old broommakers broom handle. Then get a couple of horses and let the Hatfields and McCoys joust it out on the square?
