My husband, 2 year old daughter, and I are moving to Morrisville mid-January. We have been checking out apt. complexes and found one called Cross Timbers Apts. on Golden Horseshoe Circle. I am ready to put a deposit down on an apartment, but I want to make sure that it is in a safe area and reasonably O.K. We don't expect greatness. .. just safety and relatively clean area. (We should only live there for about 6 months or so.)

Does anyone know if this place is O.K.?

Thank you for any help we can get!!!

Very nice area. Absolutely safe. It's really close to the park and aquatic center. There is another apartment adjacent to it, Huntington, where my friend lives. So, that's how I know the area. I think there is an elementary school right on Morrisville Parkway. Overall, you won't go wrong!

Tom.

We lived right around the corner at Camden Westwood and I drove past Cross Timbers every day on the way to and from work. I can't comment on the actual apartments, but the area is nice.

I belive that they are right across the street from the Morrisville indoor pool and Morrisville elementary, and right down the street from a city park.

While Morrisville Carpenter Rd, which is one street north, tends to get lots of traffic, Morrisville Parkway always seems to remain free of traffic. It is a nice 4 lane road with a tree lined median (Bradford Pears, I belive, which create a white rain of flowers in the spring). A little bit up the street towards 54 is Prestonwood Country Club, which has a few dozen million dollar homes adjacent to Morrisville Parkway.

Thank you both for your help on this!! I'm feel a lot better about renting there sight unseen.

I live across Morrisville Pkwy and I believe it to be a nice quiet area. The proximity to the elementary school, the park and also the aquatic center are huge pluses in my book.
