"Westwood: A Beautiful And Enchanting Neighborhood"

The Westwood neighborhood is filled with a tradition of old fashioned friendliness and participation that defines the quality of life here. This beautiful neighborhood possesses an abundance of trees, shrubs, gardens, birds, and other small wildlife. Surprisingly, this lovely haven is convenient to all sorts of urban conveniences. Galleries, groceries, shopping, and restaurants are all within walking distance as are some greenways and playgrounds.

The Westwood neighborhood began in 1925 by a group of businessmen known as the Knoxville Suburban Corporation, who began acquiring tracts of land, then began building roads and selling building lots. The homes of the Westwood neighborhood represent a variety of architectural styles, which were first built in the late 1920’s and 1930’s. A number of the homes were built before the stock market crash of 1929. In the 1940’s and ‘50’s many more homes were built and occupied within the subdivision, and a spirit of community developed that continues today.

Westwood Park is located off Herron Drive, which was created by a dedicated group of Westwood neighbors in 1993 and consists of a walking and jogging path, benches, a fabulous picnic shelter, a gazebo, playground equipment, shade trees, and picnic tables. The Westwood neighborhood is located off the Papermill Road exit, and is bordered by Papermill to north, Kinston Pike to the south, Highland Memorial Cemetary to the east, Northshore to the west, and up the hill from Bearden Elementary School. If you are looking for something in West Knoxville that is conveniently located and affordable, then the Westwood might be just what you are looking for.
