Kenwood Oaks is a neighborhood of 90 single family homes with no through traffic in Springfield. These houses were built between 1979 and the early 1980s. The only entrance is located off Rolling Road, only one block from the intersection with Old Keene Mill Road. There are 4 different models; 2 colonial styles (Thomasville and Ralston) and 2 split level options (Quebec and Marlborough). All homes have attached 2 car garages; many also back to parkland. In fact, Kenwood Oaks is the only area in West Springfield where all homes have double garages and are also close to transportation. The Hidden Pond Nature Center and the adjacent Pohick Stream Valley Park are well-situated next to this community.
