Palms is bordered by Culver City to the south, Rancho Park and West Los Angeles to the north, and Mar Vista to the west. The district’s boundaries are National Blvd. and the I-10 on the north, the Culver City boundary on the south, and the San Diego Freeway on the west. Principal thoroughfares include National, Palms, Venice, and Sepulveda boulevards and Overland and Motor avenues.
The portion of Palms bounded by Overland, Sepulveda, National, and Charnock Road was developed just before World War II as Westside Village and is considered by its property owners’ group (the Westside Village Civic Association) to be a distinct neighborhood.
