Why Do People Live Here?
Capitol View isn’t just a clever name for this neighborhood on Madison’s south side.

Capitol View is also located adjacent to the Alliant Energy Center, which is one of the city’s most popular expo and entertainment venues. Quann Park unfolds north of Capitol View and features 55 acres of open space where dogs can run free. The park, which is also home to athletic fields and Wingra Creek, extends north into Goodman Park, where a community pool provides hours of summer fun.

The city bike path runs along the Lake Monona shoreline on John Nolan Drive, which affords fast access to the Monona Terrace and Downtown Madison.
