Why Do People Live Here?
Elvehjem is among Madison’s larger residential neighborhoods, but an active and engaged group of neighbors lends it a small-town feel. At the heart of the neighborhood is Elvehjem Elementary School, which rolls north into the Elvehjem Sanctuary and Elvehjem Park. There, neighbors enjoy acres of hardwood forest and prairieland, athletic fields, basketball courts and tennis clubs. The park also features a playground that Elvehjem neighbors raised funds for, designed and built. Acewood Conservation Park, which is located along the neighborhood’s west border, features 40 acres of wooded area, a kettle pond and prairie lands. Droster Park, which unfolds south to the neighborhood boundary, rounds out Elvehjem’s natural areas. The neighborhood is extremely friendly for walkers and bikers, and an extension of the city bike path connects Cottage Grove Road to Buckeye Road. Plenty of neighborhood social events are held throughout the year, too. A neighborhood jogging group, Independence Day parties and summer picnics are just a few of the opportunities throughout the year for Elvehjem neighbors to connect.
