There are a handful of shopping centres established nearby that serve the community including the Westhills Towne Centre, Westmarket Square, Signature Park Plaza, and the Signal Hill Centre.

The hill is instantly recognizable and identifiable from the numbers 137, 113, 151, and 51 as illustrated on the hill; these were made from soldiers gradually hauling over 16,000 stones up the hill in order to arranging them in this order. These four geoglyphs identify the battalions that served here.
