I love this community! I have moved around so much the past few years and am happy to say that I will be at Garden Park for a long time. The staff knows everyone by name and it's obvious that they genuinely care.
office staff is super friendly and helpful excellent location near campus; great place for students
5 star - great place
I like the apartment overall but a lot has changed over 3 years (new ownership). I like the big windows and the fact it feels like we're nestled in the woods. I never use the amenities myself so I can't talk on them. It is really convenient to live behind Harp's (open late), especially if it snows although in the snow the parking lot isn't cleared so it stays icy longer than the roads. Many people park in the complex to catch the bus or to go to football games as well.They used to accept packages at the office but they don't do that any longer (they aren't there on the weekends).
When I moved in it was $650 and it went up $40 the next year as well as an increase in the pet rent (they always advertise "move in specials" that go up after the first year). Now my rent has gone up to $800 (not including the $18 per person water, electricity, and pet rent) and I just don't think their 722 sq. ft. apartment is worth it. It has what I call a "half kitchen" which has 1 drawer and only 2 small counters. The dryer has the water heater over it so you have to reach under it to turn the dryer on and you can't even open the dryer door all the way due to how small the laundry room is. The bathroom area has lower ceilings than the rest of the apartment which are low enough for 5'4" me to touch them (I can imagine a tall person in the shower). The rooms are on the smaller side as well. They do have central air which is good, though the way it is setup I could smell my neighbors' cigarette smoke in my apartment no matter what they did. I don't know why they bother with the gates as many don't automatically close and maintenance drives right by them without closing them. They allow pets but won't hire a grounds keeper and many residents don't clean up after their dogs. They dropped the weight limit for dogs as well, so I've had to deal with the 70lb dog upstairs making a ruckus. Recently they painted the stairs which started peeling after a couple of days.
The management and the maintenance crew are amazing. The amenities are good and always available. The apartments are really nice and its a good safe family and pet friendly place to live. The location is great to the store, food, campus, and the interstate. The only issue I have with the place is how much you pay for the size of the apartment, in a one bedroom at least.
