All About

Living In Kensington, CA

The small community of Kensington, located in Contra Costa County in the San Francisco Bay Area offers apartment residents excellent views of the Golden Gate Bridge as well as the bay itself.

Kensington's small-town environment is perfect for apartment hunters looking to live in a peaceful, comfortable community. While the town is certainly small in size, it offers a plethora of recreational and cultural opportunities for its residents to enjoy.

One of the most prominent features of Kensington is the University of California's Blake Garden. This 10.6-acre public garden, which is located four miles north of the UC Berkeley campus, is a well-maintained outdoor environment which supports teaching and research in both the landscape architecture and environmental design fields.

For Kensington apartment tenants, Blake Garden offers a chance to appreciate a large diversity of plant and animal species.

Development of the garden, which offers some unique views of the San Francisco Bay, began in 1920, when purchasers intended to build a football stadium for the university. Upon discovering the views and the natural beauty of the land, the purchasers ultimately decided to create the garden and build the stadium somewhere else.

Classes at the university often take place in the garden, but Kensington apartment tenants can enjoy its relaxing atmosphere during the weekends. Various community service programs and groups spend time in the garden participating in various educational and cultural opportunities.

In addition, tours of Blake Garden are offered for groups of ten or more people and other nearby parks are also available for children to enjoy a variety of recreational activities.
