You can search for Widgets in the App Store.

It seems you are not alone with your disatisfaction of macOS 15 Catalina and a lot of sites are now popping up with How to downgrade from macOS Catalina instructions.

Not the easiest thing to do If you want to back to High Sierra or earlier.

I got fed up with Apple removing so many features and stuff not working years ago I have just stuck with using mainly Mavericks but I have a working copy of Sierra available to use in case I need itIn a separate partition, and a copy of High Sierra hidden away If I get really desperate, which is also the last Mac OS Version my mid-2011 iMac can run.

Nothing I need or can use in the later OS versions and besides I want to use the older features they removed from their latest versions.

So much for their "New and Improved" OSs!!!

Yes, It seems Apple has killed off Dashboard with the latest Catalina Mac OS 15, but widgets will still remain:

Dashboard is finally going away entirely in Catalina, but Widgets are still there, they're just architecturally better and easier to access from the Today panel of the Notification Center.

ActuallyI thought they were basically both the same sort of thing, But Dashboard was the application, and Widgets were the information part that got displayed.

Either way I hardly ever used them as they were some pretty heavy duty OS Resource users. Or should I say Dashboard was a heavy OS resource user and would hold on to a good big chunk of memory even after being Quit.
