    I haven’t had any issues living here, I just wish there was a way to make the garbage area more private there’s always transients looking through our garbage taking everything out as well as random people. That drive through here and dump. Lots of garbage it makes it look trashy.

    The value of our 2 bed 2 bath unit is very good! It’s is isolated from street sounds and feels secure though neighborhood is not the best.

    I really wnjoy living at the Parker. Its the perfect space in town for me at this time. The staff is nice and helpful, i especially love our cleaning team. The noice is minimal and my neighbors are nice. I do wish we had more community activities. The previous property management team did wine wednesdays but other things could be cool too! Id love to feel more like a community because that was what i was looking for when i moved into the parker.
