Why Do People Live Here?
Whitetail Ridge is one of Madison’s newest north side neighborhoods. Its close proximity to schools and parks have made it a fast favorite among young families. Whitetail Ridge Park, located between Anhalt Drive and the northern neighborhood border, is a hub of community activity with basketball courts, soccer fields, open spaces and a playground area for younger children. Pedestrian paths extend through Whitetail Ridge and make walking to parks, eateries and stores a breeze. That’s no mistake, either. City officials launched a massive rejuvenation effort that brought sweeping improvements to Sherman Avenue, which runs along Whitetail Ridge’s western boundary, and Northport Drive, located a few blocks west of the neighborhood, and Packers Avenue, which runs along Whitetail Ridge’s eastern boundary. What does that mean for residents? Better connectivity through a series of pedestrian paths, wider sidewalks, new bike lanes and aesthetic features like landscaping, artwork and attractive bus stops. Whitetail Ridge has been at the epicenter of efforts to rejuvenate the north side, and that will continue well into the future. The city plans to encourage redevelopment of commercial areas and underused properties on the north side to ensure a bright future is in store.
What Does the Neighborhood Look Like?
Developed in the early 1990s, Whitetail Ridge is among the north side’s most modern neighborhoods. Many of the homes in the neighborhood feature two-car garages and modern architectural inspiration. A rural appeal permeates throughout Whitetail Ridge with farmland and forested areas crowding the southern, eastern and northern borders. The neighborhood’s suburban-inspired design adds to its rural charm as well. Homes are arranged on no-through streets, which cut down on neighborhood traffic and make walking and biking safe. That’s good news because Gompers Elementary School and Blackhawk Middle School are both a short walk east of the neighborhood. That’s made it a popular place for young families with young children regularly living in more than half of the households. A small pocket of multi-family dwellings is tucked behind a grove of trees along the eastern border, otherwise Whitetail Ridge is comprised exclusively of single-family homes.
