There was a bridge over swan lake at one time, also one over the lake at the Biergarten

The bridge over Oktoberfest's lake was added 1983 and the one over Swan Lake was present when the park opened in 1972. I believe that they were both removed after the 1994 season (at least that's the last time they were depicted on park guides).

As scanned and shared by Steve Frazier, the 1970 Taft Broadcasting annual report:
