Things to do: theme parks, museums, golf
Kensington is a town located 15 kilometres northeast of Summerside in Prince County, Prince Edward Island, Canada; In 2011, the population was 1,496.The area was first known as Five Lanes End, as roads from five different communities converged at the point. It was renamed Barrett's Cross in 1824 after an early settler who established an inn in the area. In 1862, the town was renamed after Kensington Palace in London and it became a town after the Prince Edward Island Railway's mainline from Charlottetown to Summerside curved through the community. The town's former railyards are now rehabilitated as a tourist venue, with the former railway station designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1976.Aside from being a service centre for the surrounding farming areas, Kensington hosts many notable events throughout the year. These include the Kensington Harvest Festival, Miss Community Gardens pageant, and many more.EducationKensington has schools from Preschool to Secondary. It is part of the English Language School Board (formerly part of the Western School Board) District of schools.
