Comments: Enjoy many learning opportunities at McColl Pond in the City of Savage.  Walking trails weave through native prairie landscapes exposing youth to habitat and wildlife they may not experience anywhere else in the Twin Cities.  Fishing at McColl Pond may result in an excited child catching Bluegills, Largemouth Bass and Channel Catfish.
