Madison Park is like a quaint, little village in the city that is just south of the 520 bridge and borders Lake Washington. Residents find few reasons to leave this established and beautiful neighborhood. Madison Street dead-ends at the shores of Lake Washington and creates a cul-de-sac of sorts. It is one of the safest neighborhoods in Seattle and provides and most everything you need, from groceries to dinner to a haircut, is within a short distance from Madison Park. In the summer, Madison Park beach is a fun place to hang out. Except for the neighborhood pub, there’s virtually no nightlife here, but that’s what some people like about it.
