Westgate is fantastic. Beatiful tree lines streets filled with well kept old homes full of character. Other than the occasional car break and such, crime is pretty much non existent.

The community is fantastic. Neighbors talk to and look out for one another, kids play outside, etc. At the heart of the neighborhood is a HUGE park with 2 playgrounds, a state of the art Rec center, baseball fields, basketball courts, hand/racquetball courts and an indoor shelter house with A/C, heat and a kitchen that can be rented for events.

Schools are average, but if you learn how to navigate the lottery system in Columbus you can get your child into just about any school in the system.

The only drawback is a severe lack of retail/restaurants. There are 2 fantastic breweries (side swipe and Four Strong) within a quick bike ride of the neighborhood though. Grandview is also very close.

Very safe and beautiful area with a great park. This is by far the nicest neighbor in the zip code. Although it borders Hilltop, an area with moderate petty crime, it doesn't affect Westgate as far as I've seen, read or heard.
In my direct neighborhood,, there is rarely a problem with vacant or abandoned properties, but in the are surrounding my neighborhood, there are several vacant buildings.
