All that makes Madison a great city to live in can be witnessed in the near east side neighborhood of Schenk Atwood. There’s a funky vibe and commitment to local restaurants and businesses; a place where young entrepreneurs tip back pints of beer with blue collar workers, and parks and neighborhood festivals bring generations together.
Rivers, Lakes and Bikes
Bordered on three sides by water, the Yahara River, Starkweather Creek and Lake Monona, the Schenk Atwood residents have a wonder of natural beauty in addition to the gorgeous Olbrich gardens to enjoy. Bikepaths intersect this neighborhood, making commutes to downtown a short 10 minute ride. The Willy St. Coop is just a few blocks away but the Jennifer Street Market in the center of the neighborhood allows homeowners an experience that few people in the city can enjoy, a short walk to a neighborhood grocery store.
The Definitive Madison Neighborhood
The Schenk Atwood businesses are a combination of local restaurants, nano breweries, cafes, music venues, design studios and advertising agencies. The blend of hip and savvy with earthy and wholesome defines this Madison neighborhood through and through, and the Barrymore Theater caters to all those tastes. One night you can catch a tour of environmental documentary films and the next see a national music act or comedian, all within a few blocks of your home. The summer festivals along streets and in parks feature music, food and activists advertising their causes, and they are a favorite among long time residents and neighborhood newbies as well.
