Community Events

Social Hour

Westgate hosts casual social hours every other week, usually Wednesdays at 7PM in the Basement Lounge. Residents come to socialize, relax or just enjoy the snacks and drinks.

Grill Night (BBQ)

Hot Grill Nights are hosted every Friday night between May and September. Starting at 6PM, Westgate residents are invited to come down to the BBQ pits and grill their own food. The grills are run by members of the WEC and residents are encouraged, but not required, to enjoy their dinners outside with their fellow residents. Check the calendar for exact dates and times.

Gardening Program

Community Gardening at Westgate happens through individual plot gardening (located near the Westgate highrise shuttle stop) and through community garden planting (located between lowrise buildings C&D). Together, these efforts are coordinated by volunteer residents who support “growing” and healthy eating at Westgate. We encourage anyone interested to sign up to help water the community garden on the watering schedule. Questions?
