Located inconspicuously on the west side of town in North Central Coral Springs, the Kensington neighborhood is the picture of a South Florida family oriented suburban community. It’s subdivisions include Chelsea, Kensington Classics, Kensington Commons, Kensington Gardens, Kensington Glen, Kensington Green, Knightsbridge, Parkwood, Sanctuary and Vanderbilt Estates.
There are Sprawling Spanish-style ranch homes that feature open floor plans and are situated on big lots shaded by palm trees and ringed by canals, with practically all necessities within easy reach. There are smaller one and two story 3 bedroom homes on smaller 1/4 to over 1/3 acre, and up to 5 bedroom mansions.
The neighborhood is freckled with gated communities, separated from the main cul-de-sacs by canals. Two scenic canals run through Kensington, and residents can enjoy the outdoors at Paul Britton Park and the larger North Community Park. Paul Britton Park features a central playground, with other amenities such as picnic tables, a basketball court, grills and a rentable pavilion perfect for weekend cookouts. North Community Park offers basketball and sand volleyball courts, soccer and football fields, baseball diamonds and tennis courts. The park also includes a picnic area and a mile-long paved walking trail that winds along the banks of the canal and around a pond bedecked with a sparkling fountain.
At The Shoppes at Heron Lakes, located directly in the neighborhood, patrons can work out at LA Fitness, Healthy Delights Cafe or enjoy a meal at Lefty’s Tavern and Grill.
Kensington sits isolated from the rest of Coral Springs, yet is merely 9 miles from Butterfly World, a vibrant botanical garden filled with birds and butterflies. Locals are also a quick 20-mile drive to the beach. Fort Lauderdale, where residents can stroll the river walk or visit the Museum of Science and Discovery, is 25 miles away. Residents of Kensington enjoy easy access to Sawgrass Expressway, connecting them to Florida’s Turnpike and Interstate 95. The Sawgrass Expressway also runs south along the Everglades to Interstate 595, a palm-lined scenic route to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport which is 30 miles away.
