As it stands now we have two options [for the Hannibal riverfront]. One is to make another walking park, or a boat docking area. I have one other plan that your readers might get behind.
We already have the pool of water, why not make a water park? Close off the river and open up to Bear Creek. Put in two-person paddle boats, a water slide for swimming — all downtown.
Children that are from out of town would have something to do on hot days. I think would be a money making option instead a walking park or boat dock that only a few would use.
Your readers should contact any that are involved. This could be a nice addition to the riverfront.
