Why Do Residents Choose Westwood?

The Lifestyle

Apart from its ideal location, easy access to main roads, and superb amenities, the main draw of relocating to Westwood is the friendly, active community, which is comprised of diverse individuals with a vested interest in the quality of life for all residents. An example of this is the Westwood Foundation—governed by the Mayor, President of City Council, and five citizens—which oversees many scholarships, housing and leasing matters, and recreational development opportunities in the community, ensuring that Westwood citizens have a voice and fair access to community resources, thus helping residents to thrive.

Parks & Recreation

One of the huge draws of Westwood real estate is its picturesque location, nestled amidst wooded hills, windblown grasses and gentle streams. Westwood residents have countless ways to enjoy the outdoors, whether it be hiking, cycling, or dabbling in photography at local Westwood Park. The Johnson County Park and Recreation District offers an abundance of activities and facilities in and around Westwood. Nearby Antioch Park, Johnson County’s oldest park, has always been a local favorite. Now, with recent upgrades in facilities, as well as wetland and lake improvements, it’s an even better place to spend the day swimming, path-walking, or picnicking.

For a more holistic approach to recreation, visit Woodside Health and Tennis Club, Westwood’s premier wellness and recreation center. Whether you are looking to push your body to its limits, or open your mind to a state of deep relaxation, Woodside features top notch fitness equipment, swimming facilities, tennis courts, steam room, spa and sauna to help you achieve your mind and body goals.
