So far happy and haven't had any thing seemed to have to be fixed and from the call to it being fixed took less then 24 how they call before and after to check if there's any problems.

                        Overall nice, laundry room is mostly clean and courtyards look nice, but there is a pretty severe feral cat problem to the point where the cats fight at least once a week and it's loud. Overall a 9/10

                                            The community is quiet and very well kept! There's parking right in front of my unit which is very convenient.

                                              Overall, pretty well. I just have a complaint regarding the rear door of my building. Also, there are some neighbors that do not pick up their dog ---- as well. This is annoying. I like some of my neighbors but some of them are… See More>

                                                I love living at Ken Gardens! The office and maintenance staff are wonderful and the apartments themselves are so nice!! I was a former resident here and decided to move back after my life situation changed.
