Westgate Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Westgate neighborhood is hemmed in by 13th Avenue Southwest, which is less than a mile east of Interstate 29, and the West Acres Shopping Center. It became part of Fargo in 1975, which is when development took off here. There are more than 60 condo buildings and 70 apartment complexes in this neighborhood. It is high-density, trendy, and pedestrian- and bike-friendly.

Preschooling and child care are available at the Tot Spot, also on Page Drive South. Nearby churches include Bethlehem Lutheran on 16th Street South, Good News Lutheran on 25th Street South, and Free Methodist Church on 10th Avenue South.
Westgate is home to the Metro Rec Center, an indoor soccer arena that is available for rent throughout the year. Westgate Park, along Southgate Drive South on the lower east side of the neighborhood, has baseball diamonds, a soccer field, biking and hiking paths, and playgrounds.
