Profile, Statistics and Indicators
Neighborhood Description: Sunset Hills Neighborhood is nestled in a hilly and wooded area on the near west side. Our homes were built in the mid-fifties and sixties and were designed to respect the topography using a variety of natural materials. The area is now considered to have one of the highest concentrations of exemplary mid-century modern residential architecture in the city and includes homes by several prominent regional architects. Reservoir Park is a small neighborhood park directly east of Sunset Hills which features a playground, many trees, native plantings, and an underground water reservoir. Hoyt Park is a 32 acre park located directly to the north of Sunset Hills. Hoyt Park was acquired and developed between 1892 and the 1950's to provide a variety of recreational opportunities. The natural landscape includes a mix of young and old-growth vegetation, a network of paved and unpaved hiking trails, unique rock formations, and woodland and prairie ecosystems. Stone fireplaces and shelters, built in the 1930's by the Works Progress Administration and recently restored, are scattered throughout. In the early years, Madison's only ski jump and one of two city toboggan slides were located in the park. Today, it includes a playground, basketball court, softball field, and a large grassy clearing suitable for soccer, football, or Frisbee. Friends of Hoyt Park has many active projects to make this park one of the finest in Madison. The neighborhood is close to Sequoya Library, Hilldale Mall area, University of Wisconsin Hospital, Veterans Hospital, and the University Avenue corridor.
