Blackhawk – Madison

Blackhawk is located on Madison’s west side and is uniquely positioned to give you the best that both Madison and adjacent Middleton have to offer.  Known as “20 minutes or less from everything,” the Blackhawk Neighborhood is a mix of custom single family homes, luxurious townhomes, and upscale apartments. Blackhawk is close to urban conveniences, including West Towne Mall, the 35+ retail shops and restaurants of Greenway Station, as well as the bohemian-chic boutiques and cafes of downtown Middleton. Sidewalks throughout the neighborhood will lead you to two Madison city parks, Blackhawk and Swallowtail, where you’ll find soccer fields, baseball fields, basketball courts, gazebos, and play structures.  Blackhawk Park is also home to a 16-acre pond great for bird watching and fishing.  Less than one mile away, residents enjoy the public 27-hole Pleasant View Golf Course during the warmer months and cross country skiing on the course once the snow flies in. Nearby is the 105 acre Pope Farm Conservancy, where you can enjoy an extensive trail system through scenic landscapes that include prairies and farmland year-round. Or bundle up and get a pass to Blackhawk Ski Club, which offers ski jumps and lessons during the winter months.
