Back in February, we featured the gorgeous Regent Street/University Heights neighborhood. This gem of a neighborhood is tucked in the heart of Madison's near-west side.

The Regent Street/University Heights community sits along the western edge of the UW campus, with easy access to downtown Madison. It may be centrally located today, but this well-established neighborhood was one of Madison's original suburbs!

The community is anchored by local shops, restaurants, and amenities along Campus Drive and Regent Street, including the Regent Market Co-Op, Camp Randall Stadium, and West High School. And a thriving neighborhood association plans community events throughout the year.

You'll find a wide variety of historic architecture styles here, from Queen Anne to prairie style to period revival -- some of which were designed by renowned architects like George W. Maher, Louis Sullivan, and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Hillington Park serves as a neighborhood gathering place, where families play in the summer and ice skate in the winter. The Regent Street/University Heights neighborhood is highly walkable and bike-friendly, with a central bike path providing direct access to campus and downtown!
