Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: The Appalachian Ridge Neighborhood covers 46 acres of land on Madison's west side, next to Parkwood Hills and the Highlands. The neighborhood includes less than 30 single family homes, although it's dotted with several apartment dwellings, as well as abundant parks and open space. This is a stable neighborhood, very safe, and our two streets have three dead ends so it's quiet. We have access to pleasant places to walk and our yards are home to quite a few wild animals and birds. Appalachian Ridge's main thoroughfare is Old Sauk Road, which runs from Lake Mendota to Middleton, and cuts through the center of Madison's western neighborhoods, enabling easy access to any part of the city.
Neighborhood Boundaries: Twenty-one single family homes located off of Old Sauk Road on Appalachian Way and Blue Ridge Parkway
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.
Neighborhood Events: Annual summer picnic
