Westwood is a census-designated place (CDP) in Boyd County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 4,746 at the 2010 census. It serves as a suburb of the city of Ashland. Westwood is closely affiliated with Ashland, as it shares its ZIP code and bus system with the city. Westwood is located on a flat to hilly elevation just west of the Ohio River.
