  WHAT’S LIVING IN Madison Valley LIKE?

Madison Valley sounds like a bucolic rural place, but it's actually a small neighborhood in the middle of Seattle. Despite its central location, Madison Valley does have a small community feel.

Its main thoroughfare, East Madison Street, has a collection of restaurants, unique home and fashion shops, and a number of fitness, beauty, and health providers. The relatively high concentration of French restaurants have earned the neighborhood the nicknames of "Seattle's French Quarter" or "Little France" and it used to host an annual Bastille Bash in July.

Housing-wise, you'll find attractive Craftsman-style single-family homes and a few condos and townhouses.

Madison Valley is bordered on the west and north by Capitol Hill, on the east by Madison Park and Denny-Blaine, and on the south by Madrona and Central District.

Powell Barnett Park was clearly built with serious play in mind. With a children's play area, complex climbing structures, a wading pool in the summer, basketball hoops,and a broad field ideal for frisbee - there's something in the park for kids of all ages.
