I lived at park Commons for 2 years, it was a really great experience. I’ve lived in numerous apartments and this was the best one I’ve been in. It’s very clean, I always felt very safe and I never had any issues. I always had packages delivered to my door and there were never issues with that. Office staff was always friendly as well as maintenance. Great place to live!- Google Review
My Granddaughter hasn't even moved in yet and I cannot say enough accolades about the apartments and the office personel. Brittany has been the best with helping us get the correct information for the application. She needs a pay raise!! It is fantastic reading all the great reviews. As happy as I am now about everything I cannot fathom being any happier with Park Commons. Thanks for the support...- Google Review
