Glen Oak Hills Neighborhood ApartmentsStart Search
Some of Madison's quietest streets weave their way through this west side neighborhood, surrounded by a number of beautiful parks. Glen Oak Hills is also known locally as the site of Owen Conservation Park, a green space covering dozens of acres. Donated by a former University of Wisconsin professor, the park is covered in oak savannas and meadows of bluestem and goldenrod which have overgrown the once cleared landscape, yielding a harvest of color throughout the year. Several no-through roads extend partially into Owen Conservation Park, lined with beautifully secluded homes.
Other parks in Glen Oak Hills real estate include Garner Park, Rennebohm Park, Kettle Pond, and Glen Oak Hills Park at the neighborhood's center. Glen Oak Hills covers about 140 acres of gently rising terrain dominated by single family homes, with about 500 total housing units. Properties here often landscaped to match their hilly park surroundings, with home designs ranging from Cape Cod to stylish ranchers. Glen Oak Hills Neighborhood's major strengths include lots of park land, friendly neighbors, a growing sense of community, proximity to good schools and diverse ages and incomes. We're especially proud of our environmental work on the neighborhood scale.
