By anonymous, Aug 04, 2016 from Apartment Ratings

My girlfriend and I have been living at Walnut Creek for almost a year now and we absolutely love calling it our home. The maintenance and management get the job done at a very fast pace. The atmosphere at Walnut Creek is also amazing and so are all of the resident events like food trucks once a month, who couldn't love that!


By Laura M., Aug 08, 2015 from Apartments

Very Happy I've lived here for 23 and half years. We have a great manager and Asst Manager finally! Things get done quickly. Much appreciated. Lloyd and Karl round out the staff. All very friendly and helpful.I would recommend Walnut Creek Apts to anyone.


By anonymous, Jun 20, 2012 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived here about a month and I like it. First off I looked at three properties in "The creeks": this one, Oak Creek and Sawmill Creek in Metairie. The layouts are all basically the same and Oak and Walnut are in the same community. I didn't like Sawmill because outside the apartments the neighborhood look run down and perhaps unsafe. Of all the creeks of River Ridge, Walnut creek is the oldest and thus the least expensive but you can't really tell from the inside. The differences I saw from Oak and Walnut creek was that Oak creek has a nice size outdoor storage area and the bathroom was a little bigger with a nice big tub and a nice cabinet. If I had the little extra money to spend I would upgrade to Oak but as it stands I am fine with the basic features of Walnut. Also they seem a little pricey but I looked other places too and the match pretty well for the going rate for 1br apt in a decent neighborhood. Some stuff I like: bedroom and living room are nice sized, the pool is always clean and clear and generally free from screaming kids, kitchen has dishwasher, office lady is very nice, the running water and trees around the apartments help keep them cooler so I find myself barely running the AC even in the dead of summer, Close enough to NO to get there fast but far enough to be away from the crime and night chaos also you are minutes from the elmwood shopping center. The community is generally very quiet but I have met some people so if you want to be friends with your neighbors you can but if you want to keep to yourself you can do that too. Some stuff I don't like: I keep finding small dead bugs, not enough to be gross just annoying since they add extra to your rent for "water and pest control", I wish I had a place to connect a hose on my patio so I could water my plants easier and use it for various other things. There is only one grill outside and it is usually in use around dinner time. Parking is horrible at night (few parking spaces and spaces are small making cars packed like sardines) if you are returning before 6pm of so you'll be fine Also VERY IMPORTANT make sure you get an apt on the INSIDE of the community. This might not make since but the express way literately runs through my backyard and make my living room very noisy at times so the location of the apt within the complex can be key.

The apartments and the area is safe. I am able to enjoy the available amenities without disturbance from others and disturbing others. Service from the managers is timely and accurate


By slmalone89@gmail.com, Apr 16, 2012 from Apartment Ratings

Moved a few years ago from IL..only had 1 day to find an apartment. The manager was great about getting us in quick. Maintence is excellent and very helpful all the time. Very Quiet even for the large area.


By nretif1102, Apr 16, 2012 from Apartment Ratings

I have lived here since October! I love this place a lot. I go talk to Allison and Katie all the time. They are great people and make you feel VERY welcomed here. I live on the third floor and never head any noise at all. I am always coming up and down the stairs and have only seen the people on the 2nd floor once and the people that live next to me I have not seen them at all. If i had to recommend this place to someone I would. This place is very convenient and there is a lot of different things around it. This apt is not that far from New Orleans as well. This place is awesome and you should move here. They also have little parties for their residents so that they can interact with us.


By julesnsharid, Mar 23, 2011 from Apartment Ratings

We were brand new to Louisiana 7 months ago. We found Walnut Creek because the price was right. We had only 3 days to move in and Christine did all she could to expedite the process, along with making it easy! Since, we've been here, we've learned how conveniently located it is to restaraunts, shopping and downtown. It is so quiet. We accidently tripped our circuit breaker and maintenance was so quick and nice to help us out. And that was on a Friday night! They even threw a Christmas party to generate a community spirit. It was so fun! I highly recommend Walnut Creek. You won't be dissappointed.


By gromit11, Feb 24, 2011 from Apartment Ratings

Walnut Creek apartments are a great place to live. They are convenient, comfortable and well kept. Tennis courts, a pool and close proximity to shopping and entertainment are just a few amenities. The management staff are professional and attentive to the needs. Repairs, if any are needed, are done expediently and well. I highly recommend this complex!


By wesleym1515@yahoo.com, Feb 11, 2011 from Apartment Ratings

Walnut Creek is a nice and quiet complex, you don't have to worry about people making noise all times of the night. The office staff is really friendly and they don't tolerate any foolishness.
