For me it is okay. However, there has been multiple stupid college students thinking they are "thugs" and shooting guns.

Its typical style apartment for college students its okay for those who need housing for college, but not for life long housing.
I am not aware of any national/state parks in the area but we do have a few very convenient parks in the area that are great for exercise or just spending time with family, including your furry family members.
