Mermaids' spring becomes state park

Published February 19, 2008
A years-long dispute between the company that runs the famous mermaid attraction and a water management district that owns the property was officially put to rest Monday.

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum ceremonially signed an agreement that makes the attraction a state park.

The park opened 60 years ago about 80 miles west of Orlando, making it one of Florida's oldest tourist attractions.
