If your boat (canoe, kayak or rowboat) is transported into the park inside or on top of your vehicle, you do not have to purchase a Boat Pass. Annual Boat Passes can be purchased at any Metropark toll booth or online. Dogs are allowed on the trails, but must be on a 6-foot leash at all times.
This area offers a nearby picnic shelter with tables and grills. Reunions, graduations, anniversaries, birthdays and any other way your family gets together – make your event more eventful with the Metroparks! We have picnic shelters available at Kensington Metropark for all your event and gathering needs. They come in a wide range of sizes and locations within the parks.
For example, commuting bikes are equipped with lightweight frames and comfy seats. Offread bikes, on the other hand, offer durable frames, full suspension, and knobby tires. Our custom vehicles are designed to be the safest, most durable micromobility options on the road today. Developed by Bird’s industry-leading engineers, our shared fleet is informed by rigorous testing and learnings from the tens of millions of rides taken on the Bird platform.
This trail traverses dense forest, has short portions that are steep, and has tree roots that stick up in several places. This mostly-wooded “backwoods trail” offers opportunities to view deer, turkey, and woodland bird species. We’re adding new accessible picnic tables and grills to several picnic shelters throughout the park system.
Occasionally woodland trails may be blocked with debris such as fallen tree limbs. Nature trails are not cleared or salted in the winter and may be snow-covered, slippery or kent bike muddy. Kensington Metropark has one Floating Beech Wheelchair available to rent for free, allowing visitors the ability to enjoy the sand and water at Martindale Beach.

The Kent Bicycle Advisory Board presents “The Ride of the Month,” a monthly recommended bike course here in Kent. They can be toggled to either flash or constant lighting of red or white LEDs and they come with a little rubber mounting strap.
I did have to swap a big spacer on the rear wheel from the drive to non-drive side and re-dish the wheel. There were just enough threads on the spokes to do this. I also replaced the flimsy rubber rim strip with a double layer of gorilla tape and I repacked both the front kent bike and rear hubs and trued both wheels. I did have the proper freewheel puller in my tool kit to remove the freewheel, but I didnt have a bench vise for leverage. I did, however, have a big wrench and the seatmast from my Bike Friday Pakit that worked great as a cheater bar.
The baskets are only in the ground for a short time each year, so try to get a round in when you can. At 10,210 feet, this champion-level par 63 course has a mix of large elevation changes and tight fairways that will test every shot in your bag. Bring a spotter because it has long holes and punishing rough. Enjoy a game of baseball or softball at one of our fields located at Playfield picnic area, as well as North Martindale picnic areas. The Nature Center has push button door access and a variety of accessible exhibits inside. Please be advised, construction is being done on I-96 which will cause delays.
The Visitors and Commerce Center is open 7 days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day and is open Monday-Friday all remaining times of the year. In 2010 New Kent launched a unique bike trail system for avid bicyclists. New Kent is the first county in Virginia to have fully mapped kent bike and signed bicycle routes. I’m a 38-year-old father of two and an avid adventurer with a history of road bike racing in the mountains. I’m also a member of the Mountain Top Cycling Club, Colorado. I took part in several cross country rides across the states with my cruiser bike.
