Kensington Community Information

Kensington is considered a bedroom community for those who commute into the Washington, D.C., area for work. Transportation options include driving on Interstate 495, riding the Metro Red Line, or the MARC commuter rail's Brunswick Line. The most common industries for employment include professional, technical and scientific services, public administration, educational services and healthcare.

Entertainment is not limited to antique shopping and community events. Residents also enjoy the cutting edge performances of the community theater group, Kensington Arts Theatre. The theater group, often called KAT, is based in the Kensington Town Center. Nearby downtown Bethesda and Rockville offer additional restaurants, shopping, theater and musical events.

Families will appreciate Kensington's network of public parks. Seven town parks and several more county parks provide plenty of space for walking, jogging, playing sports or just relaxing. St. Paul Park, Ken-Gar Palisades Local Park and Capital View-Homewood Local Park offer facilities for basketball, baseball, soccer and tennis. There are also several nature areas to explore, including Saint Paul Neighborhood Conservation Area. Kensington holds the Tree City USA designation for its forestry program and preservation efforts.
