Please reconsider moving here unless you are an illegal alien with 20 or more family members that will take all the parking or if you are operating a home based pharmacy. Also if you like paying an astronomical amount for lot rent and can't eve get a decent nights sleep because of all super loud stereos that drive through all hours of the night and wake you up because you have to get up every day and report to work!! Most of the people that live here do not work and rely on welfare to support them and all their children. There is security but they do absolutely nothing!
RUDE RUDE MANAGEMENT. DO NOT MOVE HERE!! Manager named Doreen is the rudest, nastiest person I have ever met. She belittles everyone. Treats people like they are beneath her. Has no business dealing with the community. Should be locked up and kept behind closed doors. She is very disrespectful to even the elderly. We moved because of her. There were other circumstances but she was the deciding factor to go some where else. She complains about everything yet won't take blame for her mistakes instead turns it around on you. I think she's doing something illegal cause no one in their right mind would keep someone like her running a park. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AS LONG AS SHE IS THERE. Agree with Capcitymom they let anyone in this park. I think they pay her on the side. BEWARE!!! And the landscaping is terrible. Trees and bushes keep dying. Trash everywhere. just not worth your time or money.
Don't recomend moving here excpecially if you have kids. I have lived here 4 years and loved it until new management. New school was built right behind my house and they have built a 6 ft wall so kids can't walk to school, how sick is that. Not only that manager and employees treat you like dirt when your paying thair bills.
DO NOT MOVE IN HERE!!! Unless of course you want your children abducted, the cops in and out everyday and many other things! We have lived here for almost 5 years and I can't wait to get out! They say the screen everyone that moves in here, that a bold faced LIE!!! They don't care about anything or any one except, their own kind and that is CRAP!! As far as I'm concerned this is the worst place I have EVER lived and I'm embarrassed to call it home!
WARNING! IF YOU PURCHASE A HOUSE HERE, YOU WILL BE LIVING WITH SKUNKS, THAT BURROW AND SET UP THEIR HOMES UNDER YOUR HOME, AND THE COMPANY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT!!! THEY SAY TO SPREAD THIS SKUNK REPELLANT AROUND YOUR HOUSE EVERY MONTH BUT IT DOESN'T WORK. EVERYONE THAT I HAVE ASKED SAYS THAT THEY HAVE A SKUNK PROBLEM UNDER THEIR HOUSE ALSO. I HAVE ABOUT 5 AND I HAVE TRIED EEEVVVEEERYTHING TO RID MY HOUSE OF THEM WITHOUT ANY LUCK. THERE ARE SO MANY OF THEM, I CAN'T EVEN LET MY DOG OUTSIDE FOR A SECOND AFTER 8 PM BECAUSE SHE WILL COME BACK SPRAYED BY A SKUNK. IT'S HORRIBLE. I GO TO WORK WITH MY CLOTHES SMELLING LIKE SKUNK. I'M EMBARRASSED TO HAVE COMPANY BECAUSE HALF THE TIME MY HOUSE SMELLS LIKE SKUNK SPRAY. IF YOUBHAVE SMALL CHIKDREN BEWARE BECAUSE IF THEY GET CLOSE TI THESE SKUNKS, THEY WILL GET SPRAYED VICIOUSLY BY THESE HUGE TEN POUND SKUNKS. NO EXAGGERATION! THEY ARE SO HUGE. IF ANYONE FROM MANAGEMENT IS READING THIS, PLEASE HELP US, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, BEGGING YIU TO HAVE A HEART AND SHELL OUT MONEY TO GET ANIMAL CONTROL OUT HERE TO HELP YOUR RESIDENTS, WE ARE TIRED OFI BEING EMBARRASSED BECAUSE OUR HOMES SMELL LIKE SKUNK. WE ARE TIRED OF OUR CHILDREN'S CLITHES SMELLING LIKE SKUNK WHEN THEY GO TO.SCHOOL, TIRED OF SMELLING LIKE SKUNK WHEN WE GO TO WORK. IT IS AN AWFUL NIGHTMARE THAT IS OUR REALITY. PLEASE HELP US! EVEN IF YOU CHARGE EVERYONE 5 BUCKS PER HOME TO HELP W THE COST PLEASE HELP US! THANK YOU, A VERY UPSET AND FED UP RESIDENT.

If u want something fixed u might as well fix it urself ! U call it in. HaHa! Then gotta call weeks later to ask them if they are gonna fix it. Still waiting on them to fix something. My toilet handle broke so I fixed it myself cuz I knew they would never get around 2 it! Water out! Call and they say 2 hours. That was at 5 pm. Call again and they say at 9 pm. It's 10:12 and still NO WATER! Cant even take a bath after coming home from 8 hours at work!

BUT as of 07/01/2010 a new management company took over., NEWBURY MANAGEMENT COMPANY.
Instead of informing the current residents of the changes they are putting into effect, they started harassing the tenants. You have a three day grace period for your rent and utilities that are due on the first of the month and on the second you are getting notices that your rent has not been paid. It is an uncomfortable feeling just being in your own home. Feels like a prison, they will fine you $50 for the stupidest crap ever. I would not refer any of my family or friends to move her. This is by far the worst place to be. It is no longer a kid friendly place. They are to worried about the cosmetics of the property and fail to take care of the work orders that need to be done. They spend more money and then want to charge us for petty like sh!t. THIS PLACE SUX. I'm call the BBB to inform them of what is going on and then the environment place to report the water bill situation.
IF YOU LIVED IN A JAIL OR PRISON CELL BEFORE AND YOU LOVED IT....THIS IS THE BEST PLACE FOR YOU.
IF YOU DECIDE TO LOOK AT THE PROPERTY HERE, TELL MANAGEMENT THAT YOU WANT TO ASK YOUR FUTURE NEIGHBORS THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS PLACE.
I WOULD RATE THIS A NEGATIVE INFINITY, but i have to rate it to publish.

I have lived in this park for 3 years now. At first it was not living up to par, as far as quality of residents goes.
But after the new management got here, and made the proper changes (i.e. got the rats out), this place is GREAT!
No other park in Austin even came CLOSE when I was looking to move out, so I re-signed a lease & couldn't be happier. There's even a neighborhood watch that keeps things in control. Everyone in the office (new people) are nice, friendly, and have remodeled everything! I'd definitely recommend this place as a community to raise my kids!
