Savage Community Park is a 53-acre park located on County Road 27 that provides active and passive opportunities for young and old. The park is home to the Savage Sports Center, a seasonal air-supported dome athletic facility; and an adult softball complex, which has league games five nights per week. It is also home to many different weekend events throughout the summer. Amenities include tennis courts, bocce courts, basketball court, hockey and pleasure rinks, warming house, picnic shelter, skate park, and approximately 2 miles of pedestrian pathway.
McColl Pond is located on the western edge of the park and offers walkers, inline skaters and bicyclists a spectacular view. The pond is stocked by the DNR, and a fishing pier is available for use by the public. The Environmental Learning Center offers the opportunity to learn about environmentally friendly building design, including recycled building materials and the benefits of a green roof and geothermal heating and cooling. Native prairies, wildflowers and oak savannah dominate this 10-acre park area. An outdoor classroom and trail area provides a natural setting for environmental education classes. Eight acres were added between 1997 and 1999 in an attempt to preserve an upland forest from development.
Community Park is host to the annual Dan Patch Days Celebration. Click on the link to download and print a description of Savage Community Park.
