    5/5 Felicia J. on Apr 15, 2022

    I’ve been living here for 5 years and I’ve always had any issues taken care of and the staff is really great! I would recommend them to anyone. One thing I wish they could change is the location of the trash dumpster. It’s very unsightly to see trash as soon as you come into the complex. Other than that it’s a great place to stay!!’

    4.5/5 MR. a. on Apr 2, 2022

    I relocated from AZ and was looking for affordable rent worthy properties. Mt Zion to me is centrally located. The maintenence and grounds persons keep this place in order. The property management team has helped when needed. I feel safe and cozy in my new environment. This place could use some upgrades for sure, but Park @ Mt Zion fits our budget , until we buy our first home.
