Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Junction Ridge was created on farmland about 25 years ago. The UW Agricultural Research Station still occupies about a quarter of the neighborhood, but it is now surrounded by traditional single-family homes, condos, apartments, and several assisted living options at the Attic Angel Community. Over 20 acres of park and prairie anchor the neighborhood. The park has a playground, a basketball court, a picnic shelter, and the “Neighborhood Oasis”, a patio with seating, surrounded by perennial gardens. The Association is working to add more perennial gardens and to convert one of the “no mow” areas in the park to a prairie. The large prairie in the green space, with its retention ponds,is a lovely place to look at native plants and wildlife. People also enjoy walking through the Ag Station to see the new species of flowers and vegetables that are studied each year. Junction Ridge residents can walk to a grocery store, a drugstore, a Target, and many specialty stores in the shopping areas along Junction Road and Old Sauk Road. The restaurants range from national chains to casual eating to fine dining. Whether you take Madison Metro or drive, you are only 20 minutes from downtown. In the other direction, a 10-minute drive takes you into a rural area with the Pope Farm Conservancy and Town of Middleton parks.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Madison/Middleton City limits on the north, West Beltline Highway on the east, Commerce Drive to Watts Road to S. Junction Road to Mineral Point Road on the south, and Pleasant View Road on the west
