Broad Ripple Trails
Resident • 2015 - 2016 Not Recommended
I've lived at Broad Ripple trails for the last year and a half, and I will be leaving after this year. I thought I had found a bargain when it came to being able to live in Broad Ripple. Until recently I have been pleased with living here. Lately, however, I feel that I've gotten what I've paid for. The lawn is poorly maintained, the trees and bushes are left untrimmed, covering many of the walkways. The trash dumpsters-which used to be emptied twice weekly-haven't been emptied in almost two weeks and are spilling over with bags of trash and furniture piled up against them. Further, this was once a quiet apartment community with mostly young adult professionals, however lately it seems the standards by which the ownership judges potential lessees has decreased tremendously. The door to the laundry room is outside of my apartment and the other day two people who I've never seen in my building before came in and filled all six washers and dryers in the laundry room, were having a loud (and extremely vulgar) phone conversation, and while I didn't see them smoking in the laundry room, they left the room reeking of marijuana. I have had several items stolen and my vehicle broken into when I have been home. My bicycle was locked up on my patio and was still stolen. Further, I believe there was a shooting in the apartment complex today. I heard a loud gunshot-like sound come from one of the buildings near me. I saw multiple police vehicles, and an ambulance left the scene shortly after arriving running with its lights and sirens (meaning that they were transporting an unstable patient to the hospital). In fact, this occurrence has me wondering if I should break my lease and leave immediately. I cannot recommend this apartment complex to anyone, if for no other reason because I do not believe it to be safe for families or conducive to the kind of relaxed home life that many young professional people are looking for.
