We made a special trip here to feed the birds. The nature center has bird see dispensers (25 cents) and, if you walk a bit down a trail, the little birds will land on you and eat out of your hand. Delightful one of a kind experience. Huge park with lots to do. $10 day pass per car. $35 annual... More

Kensington is an wonderful Metropark in a beautiful location. They offer a multitude of different outdoor activities, including my family's personal favorite - the pedal boat rental!

The thing I hate about Metroparks is how they nickel and dime people. Buy the pass- get in the park. Waterslides, golf, disc golf- all extra. I really can't recommend coming here for 4th of July unless you like waiting in endless traffic. Cycling into the park is fine though, despite a growing amount of questionable asphalt. I much prefer... More

Kensington Metro Park is a jewel among the various parks in the area. It possesses Kent Lake and has a paved path around it totaling 8 1/2 miles. It is home to a farm and a nature center with miles of walking/hiking only trails. It has paddle boats in the summer and cross country skiing and sledding in the winter.... More

The park is more than 4500 acres of beautiful, hilly terrain. The lush woods are full of woodland creatures, birds will even eat from your hand. There is a nature center. There are lots of trails, all good for walking, hiking or biking. There is an 18 hole golf course, a 27 hole disc golf course, with cross-country ski trails... More

This is a beautiful park. The most impressive part for me is that it has lakes everywhere and a great biking/jogging path alongside the lake. If you use the entrance closest to I-96 exit 151 you'll be closer to the golf course. If you enter via the town of Milford you'll be closer to a water park and a beach.... More

Instead of the paved trails, I took Wildwing around the lake. Very nice, quiet and sometimes hard to find the trail for all the leaves. There were some solo men walking too, which makes me a bit nervous. Sorry guys.
