A Warm Welcome To Historic Kenwood!

Located just west of downtown St. Petersburg, Florida, Historic Kenwood is a charming neighborhood filled with historic bungalows and tree-lined brick streets. We enthusiastically embrace the arts, and we actively cultivate an authentic, friendly culture where people are welcoming, diverse, and engaged.

In 2016, Neighborhoods USA awarded the first place prize in the Physical Revitalization category of the "Neighborhood of the Year" competition to the Historic Kenwood Neighborhood Association. The neighborhood's Partnership Program brings together neighborhoods and local community vounteers with physically- and/or financially-challenged homeowners to make much-needed exterior home repairs and yard clean-ups. In 2015, the program revitalized six Historic Kenwood homes and assisted two adjoining neighborhoods to begin similar programs. Click here.

Older kids (and willing adults) can take a turn on the giant waterslide and kids-size dunk tank, while the tots can enjoy wading pools and water sprinklers.
