Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Summit Woods Neighborhood is located on the southeast edge of Odana Hills Golf Course. Birds, water fowl, and winter skiing opportunities make it a great neighbor! Residents have easy access to Southwest Bike Trail, S. Midvale Boulevard, W. Beltline Highway, and Verona Road. Ranch and Split-level ranch homes constructed in the 1950s-1060s are the housing style of the neighborhood. Multifamily housing is located along Hammersley, Heritage, and Jewel. Summit Woods is full of Native American street names: Windigo Trail, Onaway Pass, Nokomis Court, Yuma Drive, Cherokee Drive, Chieftain Lookout to name a few. Of course, this provides our neighborhood with a richness of the past. Summit Woods Neighborhood Association has its own logo. The triangular-shaped logo components represent the Southwest Bike trail which is represented by the cyclist; the triangle represents Triangle Park near the boundary with Midvale Boulevard; and the trees represent the beautiful wooded nature of our neighborhood. The logo was designed by a high school student from the neighborhood.
Neighborhood Boundaries: The Southwest Path of the Capital CIty Bike Trail on the north and west, Midvale Boulevard on the east, and the West Beltline Highway on the south.
Neighborhood Statistics Indicators: The Neighborhood Indicators Project is a demonstration of key characteristics and various indicators that relate to the quality of life in Madison at the neighborhood level.
