Why Do People Live Here?
Who wouldn’t want to live in a neighborhood that bends around Lake Mendota’s north shore and unfolds north into hundreds of acres of protected marshland? If that wasn’t enough, North Lake Mendota boasts dozens of acres of parkland within its own borders. Panoramic views of marshland and the forested shores of the University of Wisconsin across the shores of Lake Mendota are everywhere you look in North Lake Mendota. Its quiet residential streets and close proximity to jobs and schools on Madison’s north side make it a popular neighborhood for young families. Located south of Northport Drive, residents here enjoy recent city efforts to rebrand the corridor as a gateway into the city. Northport Drive was rebuilt from the bottom up with new streetscapes, sidewalks, bike lanes, community artwork and signs to highlight the area’s unique attributes and to brand it as a gateway into the city.
What Does the Neighborhood Look Like?
Much of North Lake Mendota was developed in the early 1990s, which makes it one of the north side’s most modern neighborhoods. The area’s agrarian roots still shine with the occasional roadside barn or outbuilding. The neighborhood is divided into two distinct residential pockets. One, tucked along the northern bank of Lake Mendota, offers sweeping views and a lake breeze on warm summer days. This neighborhood is surrounded by Meadow Ridge Park and protected marshland. A second pocket of residential development offers more modest ranch and Cape Cod-style homes, which puts the area within reach for a variety of home buyers. A commercial corridor runs along the eastern border of North Lake Mendota, and the Mendota Mental Health Campus located east of the neighborhood features a tree-lined, peaceful atmosphere. The Central Wisconsin Center Campus located in the northeastern corner of the neighborhood also offers a retreat for individuals with developmental disabilities to receive short-term and long-term care.
