Resident 2015 - 2019

The staff seem friendly at first. However, once you move in you will find they are not that responsive. If you call about a maintenance issue they hardly ever call you back when you leave a message. When you call back and speak to the office she will say she got your message. It once took over 6 months to address issues that I had with my apartment because the office claimed they were doing inspections, and one issue was mold. Only for them to come into the unit to just look and not do anything. Then come back again and just do cheap calking in the bathroom. It peel off in a few days. Maintenance request on average are handled within a few weeks, as opposed to 24 hours at other buildings I've lived at. The counter tops are painted white, the pipes are old and I think they are rusted. They always leave a red residue on the shower head, shower curtain, and dish drying rack. The water out the faucet looks cloudy so I never drink it. The laundry room is very dirty. There has literally been dirt in the washing machine. There are signs posted for… See More>

    I went to look for an apartment there and was told I had to pay $35 for an application fee and $50 to hold the apartment should I be approved. I did so and was then told I was not approved. I had to drop off a money order or cashier's check in person, however, they told me they would reimburse me the $50 by the mail. That was a month ago. I have not heard from the management company and they still have my deposit although I was given no apartment. They are schemers and Adrienne, the property manager is hard to reach. Don't trust them!

      Forest Park Gardens ok not great

      I lived in forest park garden apartments form 08-09 when I first arrived I really liked the apartment but i soon foud out that just because you are in jersey does not mean everything will be all great. I will list the pros and cons first i liked having the private entrance and living on the second floor is best for me but the place had mice and I hate mice i ask the men what was the problem and they told me like it was no big deal all the apartments have mice after a while since they were attracted to me they fixed the problem with the mice which only required pulling down the heaters and covering up the holes it took ten minutes but i had to live with mice for three months. and the place had roaches i used combat roach gel which works great only needed to apply once never saw a roach again . also they were selling drugs at the house apartment located right above the laundry. the apartment itself is quiet and i love how close it is to all the shopping and different environments. the place is going down… See More>

        Good place with pros/cons

        I lived here from 08 - 09 and loved my experience at Park Forest. However, depending on what you are looking for this may or may not be for you. Noise: I lived on the second floor and I could sometimes hear my neighbors through the thin floors. Also, the grounds were relatively quiet, although the apartments right off of the parking lots may experience traffic noises/car doors slamming after hours (between 10 pm - 12 pm). This was sometimes a problem, but it wasn't too bad. The view from our windows was also of the parking lot. Therefore, if possible try to live somewhere overlooking grass or the park. Office staff: I found the office staff to be very friendly and personable. Porch: As soon as we moved in we wished we had gotten an apartment with a porch, as our neighbors were always out on their porch. (Personal preference) Atomosphere: This apartment complex is designed for families (all 3 of my neighbors had kids). However, both my roommate and I were college students and we enjoyed the quieter atmosphere and meeting different people. Management: I really appreciated the hands-off approach of the management. At my previous apartment, the management felt like parents… See More>

          It's ok

          We've lived here for a little over a year and it's ok. They obviously aren't really on top of whats going on here because they dug up the pool in front of our building and left a big dirt lot for MONTHS promising "lush landscaping". When this grass finally came they flooded the front of our apartments watering it! They also don't really care when other tenants are trashing the place. Otherwise though, it's pretty quiet, clean, and we haven't had any real problems.

            BEAUTIFUL PLACE!

            I stayed at one of their other properties and it was a wonderful place to stay at. The ladies in the office was very professional and the apartment complex was always clean. The only complaint was the laundry room. It could have been a little larger. But other than that A !

              Good Place to Live

              I had a good experience at Forest Park, the apartment manager was more than cooperative. Everything they say is up front, maintenance on top of it, and a clean, friendly place to live. <br>
