Kensington, one of San Diego’s most cherished neighborhoods, bursting with community pride.
The community, bordered by Interstate 15, Mission Valley, Fairmount Avenue and Meade or Monroe Avenue, is known for its immaculate front yards and palm tree-lined streets; the Holiday at Home Parade on Memorial Day; and regional draws like the art house Ken Cinema and Kensington Video with its 45,000 titles.
Urban designer Howard Blackson said Kensington is unique in San Diego County for its street layout, relative geographic isolation — surrounded on three sides by canyons and freeways — and architectural consistency and land-use diversity.
“I use it as a very good example when I teach classes and go on (architectural) tours,” Blackson said.
Residents describe their community, encompassing about 600 acres, more than 2,000 homes and nearly 4,400 residents, as friendly and walkable — a small town inside a big city that rarely raises a stink or pickets City Hall. This is the neighborhood, after all, that publishes an all-color calendar, “Tails of Kensington,” featuring local pooches.
