Why Do People Live Here?

Dunn’s Marsh has a long history of environmental conservancy, and the modern complexion of the neighborhood reflects that. Neighbors here banded together in the 1970s to prevent development proposed for the shores of the wetlands that now make up the southern half of the community. Today, neighbors enjoy walking and biking trails in a nature preserve. More opportunities to explore more than a thousand acres of oak savannahs, prairieland and marshland abound just north of the community in the University of Wisconsin Arboretum. Marlborough Park, located at the heart of the neighborhood, covers 20 acres and offers athletic fields, basketball courts, open spaces and an area for dogs to play. The same community spirit that helped preserve Dunn’s Marsh back in the 1970s is well and alive today. An active neighborhood association works to improve the lives of neighbors who call Dunn Marsh home.

What Does the Neighborhood Look Like?

Dunn’s Marsh straddles Madison’s southern border and Fitchburg’s northern border. Single-family homes in the neighborhood are mostly concentrated south of the West Beltline Highway. Mid-century development brought many of the homes here, and the architecture found throughout the neighborhood often reflects the period’s design. Homes in Dunn’s Marsh, however, can often be found listed well below that amount. Multi-family and rental units line Allied Drive along the neighborhood’s western border. A number of multi-family dwellings may also be found intermixed with a commercial corridor just south of the West Beltline Highway.
