Kensington

History and Geography:

Kensington is located outside the Capital Beltway around the Rock Creek basin. Kensington’s development coincided with the construction of light rail in the late 1800s. Like other communities in Washington’s periphery, the area of Kensington offered respite from District’s swampy summers.

The initial plan for the community was as a series of garden neighborhoods. Washington financier Brainard Warner undertook this project and in 1894 the new town was christened “Kensington.”

Quality of Life:

Kensington is a residential “bedroom” community of Washington, D.C.  That’s not to say that it isn’t without its own commercial center. Residents will be delighted to find a colorful selection of art galleries, boutiques and restaurants. Kensington boasts seven well-manicured parks and an active community calendar. There is a farmer's market every Saturday, from 8 a.m. to Noon, at the historic Kensington Train Station.

Getting Around:

The easiest way to get around Kensington is by car. Connecticut Avenue and I-495 are readily accessible. There are several MARC bus stops in the community as well. Kensington is located an approximately seven minute drive from the Grosvenor Metro Station on the Red Line. 

Airports:

Ronald Reagan National Airport:  < 25 miles.
Washington Dulles International Airport:  < 30 miles.
Baltimore Washington International Airport:  < 35 miles.
