Kensington Park Reviews

I've lived in Kensington park for 10+ years and know my fair share. Neighbors are typically reclusive which prevents the advancement of any collaboration. A better image would be, you are strolling in the morning and the other person doesn't say good morning. Overall, it is a fairly quiet community with sparks of drama happening on a neighbor forum. There are some individuals I can call rude and disruptive within the community. I'm talking about loud dirtbikes, constant partying, and simply sheer inconsideration of fellow neighbor's well-being.

The most accessible local business store would have to be Wal-Mart. Every person in my community seems to go there for everything ranging from a simple tooth brush, to a lawn mower. Most businesses around my area of town are very amiable and love interacting with everyone town. Stores range from small thrift shops to gigantic supercenters. Mothers and fathers go to Walgreens to buy quick items such as a gallon of milk every now and then, and save time by not going to a busy Wal-Mart. All in all, you pretty much don't have to move much around from where I live, everything you need is just around the block.
The houses where I live are great. Most of them was built in the 1900s, but they are still kept up. They have fresh paint, nice grass, and the air smells fresh. The only thing I do not like about the houses are the bills. The houses more in the front have cheaper utility bills than the ones further back.
