Mar Vista

Remains an affordable pocket in a pricey area.

Welcome to Mar Vista

Affordable Living

Originally named Ocean Park Heights, the Mar Vista, Palms area is located in the 90066 zipcode. The neighborhood was originally home to basic, low-cost homes, but as tourism and the surrounding areas of Culver City and Venice Beach grew, so did the property value. Still, the area remains an affordable pocket in an increasingly pricey area, making this neighborhood a desirable, but relatively untapped market. 

Parks and Rec 

In addition to smaller parks around the neighborhood, Mar Vista houses a large Recreation Center which features an auditorium, BBQ pits, multiple sports fields, lighted indoor basketball courts, an indoor gym, a children's play area, picnic tables, and an outdoor pool.


The Mar Vista, Palms area is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District public schools.

  • Mar Vista Elementary School
  • Walgrove Avenue Elementary School
  • Beethoven Street Elementary School
  • Mark Twain Middle School
  • James J. McBride Special Education Center
  • Venice Senior High School
  • Venice Community Adult School
  • Phoenix Continuation School
  • Grand View Boulevard Elementary School
In addition to public schools, there are great, highly ranked options for private schools nearby:

  • Windward School
  • Wildwood School
  • Westside Neighborhood School


A quick trip away from the trendy Culver City, the Mar Vista, Palms restaurant scene has exploded in the past decade to stay competitive. With restaurants featuring cuisines from all over the globe, some of the top-rated spots include Rustic Kitchen Market & Cafe, Rutts Hawaiian Cafe, and Hatchet Hall.
