Pacific Palisades isn't the most walkable Los Angeles neighborhood, according to a recent Walk Score evaluation.
The study, which is based on proximity to amenities, says Pacific Palisades is a car-dependent neighborhood. So, it earns the No. 87 spot for walkability among 95 communities in Los Angeles.
With many shoppers often out and about in the Village, the results may be surprising. However, traveling from shops and restaurants in the Highlands to the Marquez area, or from the Village to the beach, a vehicle or bike is necessary.
Pacific Palisades has a Walk Score of 46, according to the evaluation. The Palisades has 23,451 people, or 0.6 percent of Los Angeles' population, according to the data the group gathered.
Based on the study, Pacific Palisades is similar in walkability to Montecito Heights and Arleta.
Downtown Los Angeles ranked the highest among the 95 neighborhoods on the list.
Walk Score also ranked all the cities in California for walkability. Overall, Los Angeles ranks 66 out of 2,500 large cities included in the study. West Hollywood ranked No. 1 among California cities.
The evaluation is based on an algorithm that factors the distance of individual addresses to nearby amenities. The study defines neighborhood boundaries according to Zillow.com and weights the score giving consideration to population density based on data from the 2010 U.S. Census.
