About Kensington

Initially developed in the first years of the twentieth century, Kensington retains a small-town atmosphere. Many homes here date back to the 1910s and 1920s, and gorgeous mature trees line residential streets, offering both shade and ambiance. A large neon sign hangs over Adams Avenue, Kensington's main business district. This commercial zone acts as the social, cultural, and economic heart of the community. This buzzing historic district feels like an urban village, and friendly greetings are just par for the course. There are long-time favorite bars here, as well as a beloved vintage movie theater. Dozens of great restaurants line Adams Avenue, too, as well as unique boutiques, yoga studios, bookstores, cafes, and so much more. It's a vibrant scene here, and lots of neon lends the area a romantic aura once darkness falls.

Between Kensington Drive and Marlborough Drive, the charming Kensington Park is a popular spot for picnics and relaxing. There's also a children's playground and a wonderful community library here. Kensington is a tight-knit community where neighbors do look out for one another. During summer, each block throws a party, giving neighbors a chance to gather and enjoy each other's company.
