On Madison’s east isthmus, this location offers the charm and vitality that only a traditional city neighborhood can provide. Residents can work, shop, and play all within a short walk from any home in this historic, central city location. Many homes date from the turn of the century. Accessibility to Lake Mendota and the Yahara River for water activities and the linkage to the bike system provides a wide range of recreational and transportation opportunities. Three city parks, James Madison, Reynolds and Tenney, along with the Yahara River Parkway, provide a variety of resources, such as beaches, sailboard and boat rentals, an ice skating rink, volleyball and tennis courts. Northside Towncenter and Lakewood Plaza allow residents to shop and dine at places that include Willy-St Co-op, Benvenuto’s, Manna Café, Walgreens, Bear & Bottle, and more.
