How can we improve our walk score?

Hello, We have visited your site and noticed that our walk score is very low at 36%. There are a lot of sidewalks, direct access to Spotts Park, Buffalo Bayou Trail System and numerous businesses, including restuarants, bars, banks, coffee shops, grocery and drug stores within walking distance. We have reviewed how walk score is calculated, but also understand that new businesses may not be reflected. So, how can we improve our walk score? The walk score for addresses immediately South of us have an 80% walk score, which is more than double ours. Please advise.
