Ken-Gar is a tawny enclave in well-off Montgomery County, Maryland. Its name comes from the contraction of Kensington, and Garrett Park, betwixt which it is platted. It is defined by the heavily wooded Rock Creek Park on several sides, railway on the south side, and has but a single entrance. Ironically, some of the children who live in the neighborhood fancy it "rough" due to the predominately minority populace, but it is in fact an old, well-settled neighborhood with a rich history, several churches, and a civic-minded populace.
