Westminister is a relaxed, family-friendly neighborhood which boasts a neighborhood pool, tennis courts, and an elementary school. The neighborhood watch is very attentive, which makes this area one of the safer locations in baton rouge. The traffic is light, and there are a few restaurants within the neighborhood shopping center.
