Try to visit this metropark during the week or off season. It gets extremely busy during the weekends and in the summer. One of the biggest problems is the uniqueness of the park was due to the variety of wildlife, yet management feels a deer cull is needed. What they don't understand is deer will continue to enter the park from surrounding areas and the problem can't be fixed by culling. Less deer, less enjoyment for visitors especially from the suburbs. The nature center and farm center are well run. The beach is popular in the summer. It is a large park, and Kent Lake is quite large for a lake in this area. The natural expansiveness outweighs the policies of the park that are less attractive, as does the circular bike/hike trail that circles the park with over 8 miles of pavement. Winter cross country skiing is excellent, but when they groom the trails, they usually over groom, as managers do not understand how to accomplish this like up north areas do.

We visit Kensington often because we live very nearby. We've walked the paths and enjoyed skating in winter. At times, we've seen the wildlife and truly enjoy communing with nature whether it's summer or winter and this beautiful Park.

Great for groups with nice picnic areas. Also a great place for a bike ride or for walking. Wild life can usually be seen.

While he boat launches here are in urgent need of deepening and updating, the park is doing a great job in trying economic times. A new bathhouse opened to accompany the small waterpark that opened a few years ago. Great events from re-enactments to holiday outdoor symphonic concerts, as well as great fishing in the lake, make this the spot many metro Detroiters head to cool off.

Another great park in Michigan and a must to stop by and go for a walk, ride and jump in the water. Always enjoy stopping in here to enjoy a day at the park. We even have raced through the park during several different events and it's nice they allow the race directors to utilize the park.
