Kensington

Kensington has a wide social and demographic mix, with an impressive range of ethnic groups who contribute richly to Vancouver's cultural diversity. This area also has a thriving colony of artists, many in residential live/work studios. Kensington lies in the centre of east Vancouver, with scenic views from the top of the city's east-west ridge, and running down to beautiful Trout Lake, an urban lake and park.
