Burke Reviews

2 reviews
All of the neighborhoods in the town of Burke are very family orientated and safe. Neighbors look out for each other and keep an eye on suspicious activity. Each neighborhood is within minutes to the City of Madison, and many have a short commute to their place of employment. Many people can be seen walking, walking their dogs, riding bikes, kids are always playing outside, and there are many parks to visit. The Town of Burke is also close the east side of Madison retail and restaurants as well as the newly developed west side of Sun Prairie, and its newest retail developments.

It is nice but the weather can be unpredictable and there's a lot of things we don't have (like certain restaurants and stores).
