Westlake Village was designed with "natural" themes in mind. Dorchester's theme is based on fish and water. Being with nature, the neighborhood consists of many trees, walking paths and lakes which run through the entire community.
Dorchester is one of the most desirable communities in St. Charles, due to having features such as walking paths, multiple playgrounds, nature areas, scenic lakes, exercise areas, tennis courts, a swimming pool and a luxurious community center. The main playground and tennis courts are available for use by residents and their guests at the community center. Additional playgrounds are scattered throughout the community at individual townhome communities and around the lakes.
Our Community Center is one of the highlights of our community. Multiple events are hosted here throughout the year. Dorchester's Community Center is available for rent, to all residents in good standing for various occasions such as birthday parties, wedding receptions and graduation and family reunion parties.

- Holiday Parade & Visit With Santa
- Easter Egg Hunt and Visit with the Easter Bunny
