Monona is located on the East Side of Madison and is actually completely surrounded by Madison. Monona's West border is along Lake Monona. To the East much of Monona ends along Monona Drive. To the South Monona includes areas along Broadway and the Beltline (Hwy 12 & 18). The North boundary of Monona ends at Olbrich Park Beach.
Why Do People Live Here?
When many of the homes were built during the 1950's and 1960's. At the time Monona was an attractive destination for some who wanted larger home lots than many other's in Madison. However, one of the biggest reasons that people live in Monona is that they love being on or near the beautiful lakes in Madison. The views from Tonyawatha Trail are some of the best views of the downtown Madison skyline and gorgeous sunsets.
What Does the Neighborhood Look Like?
Monona is a unique mix of socioeconomics. Many of the homes are more modest sized ranch, bungalow, or cape cod style homes. While other areas along Tonyawatha Trail include much larger and more expensive waterfront homes. What started as cabins along the lake have eventually been demolished and modern larger structures built in their place. The median list price of homes as of October 2016 was $239,900. However, most of the homes on Lake Monona can typically range from $400,000 to $1,200,000. Another great feature in Monona is the excellent parks and areas for kids. The most notable is The Dream Park which looks more like a castle than a park.
