People & Lifestyle

Madison Park has been a beloved neighborhood for decades, and its charm has persisted today. Though you’re not far from the economic and cultural center of Downtown Seattle, you’ll get to enjoy a lifestyle that much more closely resembles a calm, beachside community full of friendly neighbors and small businesses. Within Madison Park you will find the exclusive gated community, Broadmoor, with gorgeous traditional architecture built along a private golf course.

Homes here range in size and style but are full of character and color that match the lively atmosphere of the neighborhood. Madison Park residents who work in the city love the easy commute, and coming home feels like an escape from the city without the longer drive needed to reach many of Seattle’s suburbs.

Madison Park is known for the quaint shops and friendly restaurants that line its small downtown center. One popular option is Cactus, which serves Mexican and Southwest-inspired dishes in a lively atmosphere. Other great spots to grab a meal or a drink are McGilvra’s Bar and Restaurant, popular for their happy hour and live music, The Independent Pizzeria, which serves fresh pizzas with a wide array of toppings, and Madison Park Bakery, where you’ll find delicious cakes, cookies, pastries, and more.

You can wander its green, lush streets, enjoy a meal with friends on a breezy patio, or sip cocktails with a view of Lake Washington—it’s all up to you, but there are plenty of options to explore. Madison Park Beach is one of the most popular fixtures of the area, thanks to its long history as a spot for Seattle residents to unwind and have fun.
