Westchase is a great place to live for people of all ages! The community has it all within a short distance: hair salons, grocery stores, doctor offices--you name it! This master-planned community is constantly kept up with. The grass is always green, the modern buildings are always in tip-top shape, and you can always feel safe at anytime of day or night here! If you get a chance, run by Westpark village and visit the small-town-neighborhood! You can walk from Starbucks to the bakery store within seconds. There is always kids running around outside and families taking long walks together. Great place!!

Westchase is amazing! The entire neighborhood is clean and beautiful, and the people are friendly. There are restaurants, parks, pools, and a variety of other establishments that make living here fantastic. I only wish to see more dog parks. My dog loves to get out of the house and I would love to let him run around a park close to home.
Westchase is a very cozy suburb, and a great area to raise a family because of the proximity to prestigious schools and sports facilities for your children. Although I wish that the construction of new apartment complexes would decrease because traffic is starting to become a big issue, and adding more living institutions for people without modifying the roads is proving to be a problem in the area.
