Sun Prairie

Welcome to Sun Prairie

Both a sense of history and a modern sense of place feel strong in this small city on the northern cusp of Madison. Historic buildings host local businesses downtown, and suburban neighborhood developments going up outside of town are suiting all tastes, styles, and budgets large or small. Farmer's markets, arts, and plentiful festivals (we celebrate sweet corn!) are community-oriented, and just plain fun.

Beautiful parks, including our fave Sun Prairie Dream Park, are spread throughout the town. Rural beauty is just minutes outside of town - and at your fingertips in newer residential developments. Marshlands and farmscapes put you in touch with nature and Wisconsin’s agricultural spirit.
