Where Urban Meets Rural 

Nestled along the Highway 280 corridor, not too far from Birmingham, Westover strikes a harmonious balance between urban amenities and the serenity of small-town life. It offers the charm typical of Shelby County’s rural essence while ensuring that modern facilities aren’t far from reach.

Community: The Heartbeat of Westover 

Westover’s modest size isn’t a limitation; instead, it’s the town’s strength. Such a scale has fostered tight-knit bonds amongst its residents, making the town a haven of warmth and security. Aptly described by its town website as having “a small town feel with a big heart”, Westover epitomizes the essence of community living.

A Plethora of Recreational Avenues 

Westover boasts an enviable range of recreational options. The iconic Westover Park, with its picturesque backdrop adjacent to the City Hall and Westover Library, is a hub of activity. From leisurely walks and childhood adventures on the playground to spirited soccer games, the park is a vibrant space that caters to all age groups. Moreover, the availability of pavilion rentals ensures that celebrations in the park have a personal touch.


But the offerings don’t end at the park’s boundaries. Venture a little further, and you’ll find local farms, like Smith’s Blueberry Farm, inviting you for seasonal blueberry picking. The simple pleasure of harvesting these delectable berries, followed by savoring their fresh taste, is incomparable.

An Ideal Event Destination 

Are you scouting for that perfect venue for your dream wedding? Or perhaps, a spacious place for a corporate event? Look no further. Westover is home to the Camelot Manor, a picturesque wedding venue just minutes from the town center. Their proximity to downtown also means that a delightful culinary experience or a shopping spree is just a stone’s throw away.

An Array of Community Events 

Westover’s community spirit shines brightest during its numerous annual events. The Christmas parade is a much-anticipated affair, offering a splendid opportunity for camaraderie and festive celebrations. The “Music in the Park” event is another feather in Westover’s cap, where melodies complete the ambiance, promising an unforgettable afternoon. For young bookworms, the Westover Public Library curates a special summer reading program, encouraging them to immerse themselves in the world of stories.
