Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: This area has a rich history beginning with effigy mound builders who inhabited the land 1,000+ years ago. In 1911 the Lake Forest Company proposed a planned community on land southeast of Lake Wingra. Development plans went awry when a myriad of construction and financial problems arose and the project was abandoned in 1922. A few houses were actually completed. The University purchased much of the former Lake Forest property in the 1930s. The property not acquired by the University is now known as the Arboretum Neighborhood - a wonderful mixture of nearly 180 single-family homes and 28 condominiums. This lovely wooded neighborhood is the gateway to the cherished UW Arboretum and all of its scenic trails. Two historic plats - Lake Forest and Forest Park - comprise our unique neighborhood.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Northern boundary is the southern edge of Lake Wingra; Eastern boundary is Fish Hatchery Road; Southern boundary is Martin Street to Carver Street and UW Arboretum; Western boundary is Arboretum Drive and UW Arboretum
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. Basic neighborhood information as well as housing, public safety, health and family well-being, economic, and transportation indicators by neighborhood is available.
