Why Do People Live Here?
Glacier Ridge is perfect for homeowners who love being surrounded by nature but don’t want to leave the city. Madison’s southwest side has seen a rash of new development: grocery stores, health clubs, restaurants and housing developments have cropped up on the rolling prairielands here since the early 2000s. But Glacier Ridge has retained a rural feel because of nearby natural areas. The neighborhood is surrounded by Ice Age Ridge Park, Glacier Crossing Park and Country Grove Park. It’s a quiet, secluded enclave among rolling bluffs, forests and parkland. Greenways spindle through the neighborhood from all sides and offer ready access to the Ice Age Trail, which empties into Military Ridge State Trail. Glacier Ridge perfectly blends rural charm and urban conveniences.
What Does the Neighborhood Look Like?

A selection of housing stock makes the area available to a variety of homebuyers, but it’s a popular destination for young families in particular.
