Welcome to Kensington
With over 250 businesses, Kensington is one of Calgary’s most vibrant communities.
Whether you want to bike along the river, stroll the neighbourhood while sipping some of Calgary’s finest coffee or spend the night listening to live music – Kensington has it all! Considered Calgary’s Urban Village, Kensington offers a unique, inner-city experience. Located just off the Sunnyside LRT Station and walking distance from downtown, it’s possible to spend an entire day exploring the shops and restaurants, or an entire weekend by staying at one of the beautiful boutique hotels.
Over 245 businesses offering
dining, shopping & services
Surrounding population of
3,000 people employed
by our member businesses
Social Distancing & Safe Shopping
