The name “Woodcrest” is a bit of a misnomer. It comes from the family name “Wood” – one of the area’s original settlers, who were actually dry grain farmers. Woodcrest is much more of a desert environment than woodland. It is also a smaller area, population-wise, with only 14,819 inhabitants recorded in the 2014 census.
