Location! Location! Location!

The Kensington Park community is different that the communities to the North, such as  Lamara and Abercorn Heights, and Ardmore Community.  The homes and lots tend to be larger.  This community has winding oak tree street that breaks away from Savannah’s typical North, South, East, West grid pattern.   From within the community you can walk to the Synagogue or to the community pool with ease.

To the West of Kensington Park is a popular shopping center, Twelve Oaks and Abercorn Walk that features shops like JoS A. Bank, White House Black Market, Williams-Sonoma, Pier 1 Imports and Fresh Market.

Kensington Park and Groveland were both developed from land  originally belonging to antebellum plantations:  Kensington Park from the former  Kensington Plantation and Groveland from a portion of Poplar Grove Plantation.

Part of the acreage associated with Kensington  Park Plantation later became known as Kensington Farm, a late 19th/early 20th  century farm operation .  In 1888, 1/3 of the plantation was sold and developed  into Kensington, a new subdivision which included property north of  DeRenne avenue.  This was later subdivided into Medical Arts and the remaining  122 acres south of DeRenne was known as Kensington Farms.  In 1950 the tracts  were purchased by developers John C. Wylly and Emanuel Javetz who immediately  made plans to develop a residential subdivision called Kensington Park.  The  engineering firm of Thomas & Hutton were commissioned to design the plan  which carved five curvilinear streets out of the wooded tract yielding 299  building sites.

In 1951 nearby Hunter Air Force Base was built which led to a dramatic increase in housing starts.
