Westwood's Parks & Recreation Committee oversees several community events throughout the year.  With the help of resident volunteers and city staff the Council committee plans the the Annual Egg Hunt, the Fourth of July Fireworks display, Movies in the Park, and Oktoberfest.  Many of these events are held at Joe D Dennis Park.

The city's Joe D. Dennis Park is located at the southwest corner of 50th & Rainbow Boulevard in Westwood
