One of Madison’s greener neighborhoods and proud of the fact, Dudgeon-Monroe encompasses the Monroe Street area with two separate small business centers while bordering the Arboretum to Camp Randall Stadium along Monroe Street. Area residents treasure their neighborhood and offer great ways to explore it. The neighborhood association has created self guided tours and treasure hunts which allow any interested resident to learn more about the area. A lazy Sunday afternoon can include a short walk to the Monroe Street Farmers’ Market at Edgewood, Trader Joe’s or to Wingra Park where one can rent kayaks, canoes, or paddle boats and enjoy the water. The bike path allows direct access to the State Capital as well as Madison’s near west side. It is home to many locally owned unique retail shops, cafes, restaurants and taverns.
