On behalf of Town Council and staff I wish to welcome you to the Town of Kensington, a beautiful and picturesque town at the heart of Prince Edward Island. Kensington, once known as 5 Lanes End is a modern, progressive and vibrant community in which to live, work and relax. Kensington is the commercial heart of over thirty surrounding fishing and farming communities. The Town offers all of the amenities of a large community, but the serenity of a small town.
Please take time to shop in one of our various commercial enterprises including a clothing store, craft shop, art gallery, bakery and restaurants among many, many others. Alternatively, please drop by the historic Kensington Train Station (once frequented by Lucy Maud Montgomery, the author of the Anne of Green Gables story), stroll our walkways, jog or cycle the confederation trail, visit a museum or visit the haunted Mansion.
Kensington is the gateway to many of the island's most visited and well-known places, including the famed Malpeque Bay, the beautiful seaside City of Summerside, and the City of Charlottetown (our province's capital). Cavendish, "The Land of Anne of Green Gables", is approximately 20 kilometers away and is home to one of PEI's most beautiful beaches as well as countless other tourist attractions. All these and more are reached via the Town of Kensington!
Before you leave, drop by the Town Hall during office hours, introduce yourself and sign our guest book to record your visit - and please, come back soon!Warmest Regards,
Mayor Barry Campbell
