Roost Around Town: Exploring Hidden Gems

Exploring all that our neighborhoods have to offer is one of my favorite parts of being a Madison Realtor. Since our family loves getting outside, a healthy roster of outdoor destinations is a must. Luckily, the communities in the Madison area provide many chances to escape the daily grind year round. Whether you have 45 minutes or an entire afternoon, the Pheasant Branch Creek Conservancy is always a good place to escape and recharge. Forest, prairies, natural springs, wildlife and Native American burial mounds are just a few things you’re sure to appreciate about this 500-acre site.

If you’re looking for a little more action, swing by the the adjoining Orchid Heights Park (along the outer path of the conservancy on the eastern edge) where you’ll find a seasonal ice skating rink, a baseball diamond, play structures and soccer fields as well as basketball, volleyball and tennis courts.

As you may suspect, expansive, natural delights such as Pheasant Branch aren’t easy to come by in urban areas, making the conservancy a valuable asset to Middleton residents as well as the local real estate market. Nestled between several coveted Middleton neighborhoods (Middleton Hills, Conservancy View, Northlake, Pheasant Branch Ridge and Orchid Heights, to name a few), the conservancy serves as a place for children and adults to explore, learn, play, exercise, spot wildlife and hone their photography skills.

Whether you’re walking, running or biking, you’re sure to enjoy your time in this dynamic natural space! Likewise, if you're in the market for Middleton or Madison real estate and you want nature, outdoor fun and urban amenities at your fingertips, I urge you to explore this fine Middleton locale.
