4. Friendly. All those people out and about make for a friendly place. Kenwick has a community garden, a park, and a community center. In additional to the bungalow tour, there is also an annual yard sale and even a yearly chili dinner.

5. Trendy. There has been a surge of new business development just outside of Kenwick’s borders including a restaurant, gym, jewelry store French bakery and other small shops, making moving to Kenwick an even more attractive choice.
