The future of the mermaid show at Weeki Wachee Springs could be protected if the state follows through with a proposal to turn the venerable roadside attraction into a state park, its managers said Thursday.

"The state taking over the park would be a good thing, if they want to maintain the park the way it is," Weeki Wachee spokesman John Athanason said. He characterized the visit by the six state officials last week as "an exploratory meeting" and said details would have to be worked out.
