I've spoke with a few Oxnard PD officers a few months ago while attending an Emergency Management Class. It really isn't that bad here. The only area with issues are the Serenade Apartments but nothing significant to cause alarm for everybody. In other words, petty. Serenade has been there long enough perhaps where people have settled in for a while and matured. I noticed the party scene is nowhere at what it used to be. Economies of scale, as new development comes and its coming, the more pricey the cost will be for renting and this will flush out SOME issues too.

Serenade is what I'd consider to be pricey apartments! I love it here and have had no qualms about it!

So, what is happening over at Riverpark? Looks like they are cranking up again. I see a whole bunch of signs from the freeway including REI opening soon. That is awesome.

For those that live in Riverpark, are you aware of the bike path on the bridge to Ventura? It runs along the freeway on the north side. I have been on it a few times, a more convenient way to get over the river.

So much going on over here. That bike path is very popular. I see people walking it all the time. I think the Target will open first.

I am glad the bike path is frequently used. I never see anyone on it but I am not through there on the 101 often

One of my brothers was living there when they were first built. He liked the idea that he was the first ever person to live in the unit that he rented. At the time and because they were trying to fill them he had a sweet deal on a 1 bed 1 bath with a garage. The place comes with Washer Dryer in a nice little closet area in the unit. Stainless appliances including a refrigerator, stove, trash compactor, and a microwave. When his lease was up they had sent him a notice informing him that the rent would be going up a couple hundred and he would need to pay additional for the garage.

The complex is top notch at least compared to what I am used to. They have plenty of amenities within the complex, including dry cleaning, a fitness center, a Jacuzi that looked larger than some pools, a club house, and on the weekends they would show movies out doors in the summer time.

You do not want to live in Riverparks. On the flood plain for the Santa Clara River on some of the most unstable ground of the county. It's a recipe for disaster. I know a civil engineer that refused to work on that project because of those issues.

I looked at River Park once. The price is attractive, the HOA fee was ok. I wasn't impressed with the surrounding areas and the Mello-Roos made me walked so fast and never looked back.

too late, damn I already live here and been here 3 years. It's all a personal preference if you ask me. I grew up in the state of Tennessee and have lived in a floodplain my whole life so it might be second nature to me.
