Kensington Community Overview

Kensington is a Business Revitalization Zone (BRZ) in Calgary, Alberta, focused around the intersection of Kensington Road and 10th St. NW, also known as the Kensington-Louise Crossing Business Association. It resides primarily in the Hillhurst and Sunnyside neighbourhood, and successful marketing has made it such that the neighbourhood itself is erroneously referred to as Kensington. It is located immediately north of downtown and the Bow River. It lately has been considered one of Calgary's trendiest neighbourhoods and many of its shops, restaurants and drinking establishments have a distinctly Bohemian flair.

Schools in the area are Hillhurst Community School, Equilibrium International Education Institute, St. John Fine Arts and Sunnyside Community School.
