Adjacent to Culver City and minutes from the ocean and UCLA is the community of Palms – Mar Vista. Named after its magnificent views of the ocean along its hilly border near Santa Monica, Palms – Mar Vista is one of the oldest communities in Los Angeles and one of the least dense in all of West Los Angeles. Palms – Mar Vista is full of homes built during the 1920s and 1930s as well as an abundance of wonderfully preserved mid-century modern architecture. Those seeking 1920s homes, 1930s homes and mid-century modern architecture can also enjoy the area’s Mar Vista Park, covering an entire city block with a new recreation center and roller hockey rink.
