Kensington is a neighborhood of San Diego, California. Its neighboring communities are Normal Heights to the west, Talmadge to the south, and the College Area to the east.
Kensington was founded in 1909 by the Santa Fe Railway Company. The name Kensington echoes the name of a district of west London. The area has kept its "small town" community feel ever since it was founded. Annual traditions include neighborhood-wide parties such as the Memorial Day Parade and the Fourth Of July Block Party/ Street Basketball Tournament. Also, most streets have their own "annual parties".
Many street names in the community have English origins, as does the name Kensington itself. The residential area has an impressive collection of Spanish Revival style homes, this being the most popular style in San Diego during the late 1920s when much of Kensington was built out. Kensington and Talmadge are sometimes grouped together as one community for official purposes.
