The majority of homes were built during the 1950s and the neighbourhood is designed with major roadways on all sides, keeping traffic on residential streets to a minimum. There is a large elderly community of people who have lived in the area their entire lives, with a younger population popping up underneath them.

Kensington School System
There is one school in the Kensington community, the public elementary Kensington School. This educational facility is a K-6 primary school in the public system that offers classes in a wide variety of courses. Areas of studies beyond the Regular Curriculum include Behaviour and Learning Assistance, Literacy and Logos Christian. The Behaviour and Learning Assistance Program was designed for students who require constant adult supervision in a tight structure to assist with their extreme behaviour. The Literacy program was created to provide academic support for students who are having troubles not just reading or writing, but understanding the information in front of them. Logos Christian is a specialty curriculum for Christian students.
