About Us:

one of the most popular parks in Michigan. Kensington’s 4,481 sprawling acres of wooded, hilly terrain surrounds beautiful Kent Lake, and is home to an abundance of wildlife and waterfowl. Kensington Metropark offers a multitude of recreational activities throughout the year, from biking and boating to cross-country skiing and tobogganing. In addition to striking sunrises and sunsets, 1,200-acre Kent Lake offers plenty of fun activities: swim at Martindale or Maple beaches, get soaked at the Splash ‘n’ Blast, or just spend the day fishing, boating or picnicking along the water. Take a tour of the lake aboard the Island Queen II in the summer and fall. Or, enjoy a winter day ice-fishing or skating on frozen lake waters.

You will love spending time at this park, there is so much to do! So many sub parks in Kensington, it is like the shopping mall of parks and all you want to do is explore every store. There are plenty of lakes and trails to go around. Places to grill, picnic tables, and playgrounds galore for the family to enjoy. One of the best experiences you should explore is renting a canoe or row/paddle boat and head out on to the lake! It feels amazing to be out on the water and rowing away. They also have air balloons here! By far my favorite park in the metro Detroit region. Whether you are an outdoors person or not, you can not help but admire the natural beauty that is Kensington.

We love going to Kensington on a nice day to get out of the house!! My young children love the splash park too! I highly recommend buying the yearly pass! It pays for it self if you go more then 3 times. It’s $10 for a daily pass and $35 for the yearly.

Beautiful park! Lots of trails for bikes and walker/hikers. Situated on a great (no wake) lake with boat launch. Beach and kids splash and play area. Multiple picnic pavilions. $10 entrance fee is well worth it.

We all love this park, there is a lot of things to do for every family member. I have not rent a boat yet, but It's in the summer plans. If you go and have the opportunity to come back for at least 3 times during the year, purchase the annual pass it is worth it and is $35 usd. Nice trail to walk until your feet hurts, several trails for an easy ride to a more challenging one. There is a small water park inside to use during the summer. Lots of animals and insects to see while you walk around the park. If you want to take pictures of birds or squirrels / chipmunks bring food so they will get closer to you.

Love this place. The water was a little murky in the dog area. But usually a great place. I do wish where dogs could swim was a little better well kept and larger. Not many places for them to swim and our doggie loves swimming
