    My only complaint: i would love to use the dog park but its more like a gaint litter box and a health hazard for dogs. Would love to see it cleaned and a crack down on residents picking up after their dogs in there

    3/5 Anonymous on Jan 28, 2024

    This community used to be a great place to live with amenities that were accessible to all (Not this past summer or last for that matter). Now, prices have increased well past the value for the apartments, the office staff feel detached from the people who live here and the people living in the complex have stopped caring about the rules (noise, parking and trash) and the environment of the community. This is a such a pretty complex. The apartments are old (old appliances, rugs and color scheme) and need to be updated..
