    4.5/5 Maurice P. on Apr 3, 2023

    My wife and I love this place. Pool is beautiful, leasing office staff is knowledgeable and transparent. Maintenance is always friendly and knows how to fix or replace everything in a timely and efficient manner. The College can get a little noisy from the games, but other than that, great place to make home. Sprouts just opened up next door too.

    4.5/5 Brittany M. on Aug 2, 2021

    Park apartments has to be the best complex I’ve ever lived. It’s like our own little community here. The office girls are so nice and can help you out in any way they can. The maintenance men do such a good job and r super friendly. They are so good at fixing things and helping out where they can. The apartments are spacious and well kept I love the counter tops and the flooring it’s so nice. I highly recommend living here
