It's a wonderful community, with few problems.

"I love the maintenance staff at Forest Park. They are all friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They really make you feel comfortable. Rebekah and Dave, in the office, are very helpful and always make you feel like you are the priority. The apartments are nice. Comfortable and well laid out. The apartment management seems to keep up with updating and fixing issues. The grounds could use a little work. The dog park has holes in the fencing, by the gates especially, that small dogs can run right through. Considering these apartments want you to have dogs under 20 lbs, this poses a huge issue. The gardens are pretty during spring and summer, but there is so much more that could be done with them. It would be nice to see more flowers and diverse plants, rather than having switch grass, pampas grass, or zebra grass. I love the tenants' gardens. Seeing the many different gardens grow is beautiful. It is great to have a pool on site. If only we could have a gym as well, but I understand that funding such a thing could be an issue. Overall, my family and I really love living here. Any issues we have are small compared to the many positives we feel about the complex."

Good Location, Price and People

I lived in a studio at Forest Park for two years before I moved out of state. The price was the best I could find in the area.The staff was always friendly and informative. Any maintenance issue I had were taken care of almost as swiftly as I could report it. They would come snake my bath tub drain any time I asked. And when my air conditioning went out in the middle of the summer talk about hot , they replaced it within hours. In the winter they did a good job of clearing the parking lot of the snow. The pool was never over crowed or really noisy.The complex is nicely tucked into a wooded area, which makes it quite. Would've been nice if there was a grocery store or gas station closer, but never a real problem. If I did not have to move for work, I would've have definitely stayed.

I think that Dave is a judgemental individual who shouldn't

I would say live somewhere else. The Pest control leaves a lot to be desired. Then you can possibly get charged for something not in your lease.

Five hearts rating Stars are not enough....I love living he

I've been living at the Forest Park Apartments for four years, and I love it I've lived at other apartment complexes and they are all pathetic in comparison. Not only is the monthly rent reasonable, but the staff really and truly care about their residents The maintenance team is wonderful professional, friendly, respectful, fast, and efficient. Issues are fixed, not like other complexes where problems are rigged for temporary fixes. The owners care about the quality of their units. I love living next to Forest Park. I'm able to take hikes from the convenience of a trail behind my building. I feel extremely safe coming and going at any time-day or night. I enjoy the clean and well cared for pool in the summers. I can go on and on My apartment is not just an apartment, it's my home. The staff are not just staff, they're family. In addition, my two kitties love calling the apartment home as well. They enjoy watching wildlife from the patio door so many birds, squirrels, chipmunks, and rabbits .

Fair to Poor Quality

To be completely honest, I've had nothing but problems since we've moved in. The people working in the office and others that live in the community are nice enough. However, I've had an exterminator out 3 times for bugs, caught 6 mice, amid other minor problems since I moved in just 3 months ago. The rent is cheap, but the apartments are laid out oddly when it comes to light switches, and heating cooling units. They do allow dogs and the pool is always clean and not too busy, which are both a bonus.

Best offer for best price

For the price you pay to live here, the environment, staff, and other residents are perfect. All maintenance issues get fixed efficiently, and they are always cautious of your privacy.

Very nice place to live

I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The staff was very helpful and friendly, it was peaceful and I never felt unsafe, and the apartments themselves are well kept. My only qualm was that the only air conditioning is a window unit in one of the bedrooms, which did not cool the place down well. Other than that, 10 10 would live there again

Quiet, clean but needs some updates

I can hear the neighbors upstairs walk across the floor and play their video games. The staff and maintenance are helpful and timely. I love that the location of the trails and woods is so near. I don't hesitate to walk the sidewalks at night lots of people walking their dogs. Pet friendly. I feel like this is a community nestled in the woods and hills next to the Illinois River, but can feel a bit isolates when my cell phone calls are routinely dropped inside my apartment.

Great Experience

Overall, living at Forest Park has been a great experience. The office staff is very helpful and accommodating. Apartments come clean and ready to move in with no outstanding issues. The grounds are well kept and the maintenance staff is prompt and friendly. Also, the location is hard to beat right next to the nature preserve. An outstanding place to live.

It's well worth it

I've been living at this apartment complex with my mother for almost two years. We never have any issues, the neighbors are friendly, but mostly keep to themselves. It is quiet and close to nature, no trouble, convenient mail room and plenty of laundry rooms which are all kept clean. Awesome pool, kept very clean, the staff are nice and friendly and if you ever have issues, they will come to fix it in a very timely manner. Always someone at the office to help you if you need anything. The cost might be a little high but it is well worth it for all of the things you get, not to mention its close to the Forest Park Nature Center and the trails, so you can hike whenever you want.

A great place to live

I really like the community here. The neighbors are quiet at least, we don't have a lot of noise disturbances while we're inside our apartment , and the maintenance and the management is great. They are reliable and easy to communicate with. My only issues are with the lack of central cooling and heating, the tiny tiny mailboxes, and the lack of privacy if I want to open the curtains. I don't like the thought of having someone walking by my windows and seeing inside. Overall, though, Forest Park is a great place to live. I really do enjoy it here and hope to stay for awhile.

I think the property is well taken care of.

There are a lot of things I like about these apartment. I like that it feels more of a community than an apartment complex. There are people at the pool, jogging, or even sitting on their porch. I love how pet friendly everything is and doesn't cost a monthly free for a furry friend. Everyone has been able to make not just the inside but the outside of their space unique. The events and constest really add to everything as well. I also enjoy the fact I don't have to walk down a smelly hallway to get to my apartment. My door is out in the open. In doing so my apartment smells like me and not what everyone has been cooking all day. I have needed things fixed and I am happy how fast and efficient this place is. With that said, everything here is just a click away on the easy website. At night the apartments light up in a very beautiful view making it easy to get around if you tend to get home late. Overall, this apartment complex is quiet, peaceful, and highly recommend.

Love it here

Forest Park is both very professional and makes you feel like you're a person, not just a renter or source of income. The entire staff is warm and welcome The apartments are a little dated and need some updating, but nothing that isn't manageable. They have been doing minor updating recently, which is very nice Dave, the property manager, is probably the nicest, most honest and genuine guys to rent from. He makes sure that he and his staff make all of us feel at home. I consider them more like neighbors rather than staff. I just signed my third lease here and don't plan on leaving any time soon. Thank you to the FP staff for all of your hard work and accommodations You all are awesome

I love living at Forest Park Apartments.

The area is outstanding with a beautiful park and great trails. One of the the things I like the most about living here are looking at all the beautiful houses along prospect. Everyone I've meet here so far has been wonderful and my neighbors are great. The icing on the cake is the maintenance. It is unusual for an apartment building to be so responsive with maintenance calls.

Nice place to live.

It seems each building has it's own quirks. I like my building quite a bit. Recently the neighbors moved away quietly. During the process to make the apartment available for new neighbors some rather pungent smells and loud noises became very apparent in my apartment but I have lived here for over a year and have never had any other issues.

wonderful place to live, in a convient area

There is always great parking, there is very rarely anyone outside making noise, great maintenance, I cant stress that enough They are wonderful. Downfall is the walls are thin, so you do hear your neighbors from time to time, depending on who they are and how much respect they have for others.

Great place A-1

"This is the most friendly neighborhood you could ever find. The staff is very curtious and most careing. They check in on the resident if you ask them too. Like had a tooth pulled . The office has wonderful hours and always someone there to help. They do stamps, change for the coin wash, UPS, FEDEX stops daily. Grounds are neatly done all year around. Patios that are divided so you dont feel like you are on top of you neighbor. One of the great things I love about the paito is we can use gas grills. The city of Peoria does not allow this . The pool is a walk in and great for first timers or those that are experienced. Walking pets and self cleanup is a must. The Nature Center is just a few feet away if you like to hike."

A clean, safe, well kept complex.

For a woman living alone, I appreciate that it is safe for me to take a walk outside at night if I want to and feel safe in the neighborhood . The apartment is spacious enough for what I need, and the property itself is kept clean and well groomed. The only thing that sucks is the spiders - be ready for spiders spiders everywhere spiders !!!

"It is fantastic living here at Forest Park Apartments. I feel very safe personally as well as feeling safe that nothing will happen to my apartment. I am proud to tell people that I live at Forest Park Apartments. It s appearance and grounds are always neat in appearance. The grounds employees are always busy keeping up the looks of the area. The maintenance crew answers complaints fast and efficiently. They are friendly as well as professional. Leasing agents are the best of any other properties in the area. They are knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and willing to help residents with any questions or problems. They always wear a smile and makes one feel comfortable. The site manager has an open door policy and is eager to help the residents with both apartment and non-apartment concerns. He is very approachable and always wears a smile. I just can not say enough or compliment the staff enough. This is not only an apartment complex but also a family. I would definietly reccomend Forest Park Apartments to anyone that is looking for mor than just apartment living."

Compared to other apartment complexes, they don't even come close to being compared with Forest Park! Also the prices are less expensive and you can have your furry friends live with you!!
