The page is also a great place to gain more knowledge and pass on some of your own onto others.

The Facebook page is private, meaning if you do intend to join than make sure you send a request with your personal account in order to be let in.

Town of Kensington
A beautiful town nestled in the heart of PEI. Kensington lies at the crossroads between the seaside city of Summerside to the west and our capital city Charlottetown to the east. 
First known as Five Lanes End because of its location at the intersection of five major routes, later renamed Barrett’s Cross in 1824 after an early Irish settler, before eventually being named Kensington after Kensington Palace in London.
Surrounded by breathtaking countryside, Kensington is the thriving commercial center for over thirty fishing and farming communities. 
While in our town you can walk or cycle the Confederation Trail, enjoy delicious seafood at one of our many fine dining establishments, visit our historic train station (once frequented by Lucy Maud Montgomery) and many cultural sites. 
Please take time to shop in one of our various commercial enterprises including a clothing store, craft shop, art gallery, bakery to name a few.
