Monona, WI - "The city of pride"

Originally part of the Town of Blooming Grove, Monona was incorporated as a village on August 29, 1938. Today Monona has approximately 8,000 residents. Known as "The City of Pride", Monona has a lot to boast about: it's located on Lake Monona, it has endless outdoor recreational opportunities (including over 30 parks and nature centers), high-performing schools, and a thriving economic climate. In sum, a great neighborhood with a small town feel despite being only 7 minutes to downtown Madison.

Monona real estate

Shielded from neighbors to the east by four miles of Lake Monona shoreline and Yahara River wetlands on the south, Monona Wisconsin's 20,000 or so citizens thrive amidst native hardwood trees less than 15 minutes from downtown Madison. Parts look and feel like suburban neighborhoods hiding in the woods. Some of the region’s most spectacular – and expensive – homes are nestled along the Lake Monona lakeshore. Most neighborhoods, however, consist of homes in a variety of ages, styles, and price ranges. In contrast to stately shoreline mansions, an early 20th century collection of still occupied homes and lake cabins sits on postage-stamp sized “Pirate Island,” designated a National Historic Site. Close to eastside Madison commerce parks, Monona is home to more than 500 businesses, small and large.

Monona: A not-so-hidden gem

At first glance, a visitor might describe Monona as low-key, but maybe “relaxed” is a better term. Called the region’s best kept secret, Monona has much to crow about. City leaders named it “the City of Pride,” but you’ll find that Monona residents display down-to-earth Midwestern sensibilities.

Life & leisure in Monona

Monona’s choice location provides abundant outdoor recreational opportunities in a residential setting. Not surprisingly, an affinity for boating and fishing is a large part of local tradition. Besides Lake Monona’s abundant recreational opportunities – including a public swimming beach, lakeshore biking paths, and multiple boat launches – residents enjoy more than 30 parks and nature centers, including one conservation park noted for its springtime carpet of trillium. Disc golf enthusiasts will enjoy the course on nearby Radar Hill.

Monona schools

The Monona Grove School District includes 8 schools that serve 3,088 students in grades PK through 12 in Monona and neighboring Cottage Grove. The district continues to face challenges thrust upon it by rapid residential growth nearby. The MGSD vision, however, remains the same: “a student-focused culture that empowers continuous learners to embrace global opportunities and excellence.”
