Comments: The two fishing piers on Firemen's Park pond provide great access to abundant Bluegills and the occasional Largemouth Bass. Surrounded by a city park, this pond creates a great fishing experience for families in downtown Chaska. When the fishing slows, enjoy other amenities including the picnic areas, playground and swimming beach.
