Our amenities include our beautifully maintained grounds with walkways throughout, two pools, one between Golf Glen and Golf View Roads, and one near our Clubhouse, as well as special privileges at Cherokee Country Club. Scroll down this page for more information about use of the pools and for more information about Cherokee Country Club.



Residents may schedule with the association office managers to reserve the Clubhouse for meetings or private one-time-events for a refundable deposit of $75 and a room fee of $25.  Unit owners may use the Clubhouse for card games etc. for no fee. If residents want to form a new group and want to use the room there will be no charge, but the users need to schedule room use with the office on a first-come-first-served basis. The Clubhouse has a refrigerator, microwave, and sink for convenience in entertaining. To make a reservation, contact the office at (608) 244-8144.



Our two lovely pools are quite popular in the summer. The pool areas are locked; each resident has one key and 4 ID tags that must be with the resident and guests while in the pool area.  Lose your keys or tags? Give the office a call. Breakable containers, food, and pets are prohibited from the pool area. Be sure to familiarize yourself with all pool rules described in section 7 of the Rules and Regulations that have been posted below.


The two pools are open for Cherokee Garden residents during the summer months, one located near the Clubhouse at 1436 Wheeler Rd, the other near North & South Golf Glen. Weather permitting, pools typically open in time for Memorial Day weekend and close on Labor Day weekend (or later, if the weather is nice!).


Ther Cherokee pools are open to ADULTS from 6:00am until 10:00pm. The pools are open to CHILDREN (under 16) Sunday-Friday from 10:00am-3:00pm / 6:00pm-10:00pm and on Saturdays from 10:00am-10:00pm.


Our ever popular water aerobics classes are held on weekdays starting late May in the pool by the Clubhouse, as well as in the Golf View pool.  Classes will be held through the first week in September. BYO pool noodle.

Cherokee Garden Condominiums is a short drive from Cherokee Marsh, a state natural area and the largest wetland in Dane County, offering walking and cross country ski trails and numerous opportunities for bird watching. Monthly walks are held the first Sunday of the month from 1:30 - 3:00 pm. 



Cherokee Country Club is on our northern edge and offers golf, swimming, restaurant, fitness center, year-round tennis and a restaurant/sports bar within walking distance of Cherokee residents. Cherokee condo owners have special privileges that allow them to use the golf course, tennis courts, and other amenities for a fee and on a limited basis. In addition to these priviledges, Cherokee residents who also have the regular (but not the express) membership at Princeton Club can use the Cherokee Country Club's fitness center and pool free. For more  information and reservations at the club, call Cherokee Country Club at (608) 249-1000. 


The state of Wisconsin in general, and the City of Madison in particular, are home to a diverse mix of political views, and quite a few of our residents give their time to numerous political and cultural causes all over our area. If you're interested in getting to know your local and state politicians, here's a great place to start.
