Westwood Park

Westwood Park neighborhood life revolves around parkland

The heart of the Westwood Park neighborhood is the 9.3 acre park on the edge of its border.

The  neighborhood, tucked into the area behind Pembroke Hill School on Ward Parkway, is home to 300 families. They range from retired folks to families with young children, and live in a variety of homes from single-family bungalows to much larger spaces.

But for homeowners association president Aryn Roth, life centers around the park.

“It’s one of the premier sledding places in Kansas City. As soon as snow starts to fall, you hear yipping” and people are headed to the park, she says.
