Great place to go hiking on over 5 miles of wooded footpaths with some rolling hills and around a small lake. You can often see: deer, wild turkeys, sandhill cranes, blue herons, feed chickadees and other small birds out of your hands, and many wildflowers.
There is also, a larger lake that is connected to a river system. In summer you can rent kayaks, canoes, SUP and paddle boats for an inexpensive rate. No motor boats are allowed on the big lake but you can use small sailboats and many people fish here. There is an adjacent golf course too. A larger state park, Island Lake borders Kensington and many people canoe or bike between the two parks.
In winter there are cross country ski trails both in the woods and on the golf course. You can rent all needed equipment for about $13.00.
I highly recommend a visit if you have a few extra days in the Metro area and are looking for somewhere nature oriented.
