Kentlands Docent-Led Walking Tour
The Kentlands Docent Program was launched at the 2003 15th Anniversary Community Celebration. Led by key members of the Kentlands Community Foundation Board and dedicated volunteers from the New Urbanism Committee, the official walking tour covers a lot of ground ? both literally and figuratively!
Beginning each April and continuing through October, trained Docents are available to give tours by request, preferably to groups of (4) or more. Guests should reserve a space for a Tour at least 1 week prior by contacting the Foundation. Special requests for tours of larger groups may be accommodated with more advanced notice. Tours last approximately an hour and a quarter, cover close to 2.5 miles, and begin and end at the Carriage House, located directly next to the Gaithersburg Arts Barn.
All guests will receive a Kentlands Walking Tour Guide and a brochure on the Principles of New Urbanism and Traditional Neighborhood Development.
A suggested donation of $5 per guest is recommended, and all proceeds benefit the Foundation. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase the hand-drawn Kentlands Map, which benefits the Foundation, as well.
All inquiries regarding Docent Tours should be directed to the manager of the Kentlands Community Foundation, via telephone at 301-926-6636 or via e-mail. To learn more about the Kentlands Community Foundation, please visit our History section.
The Kentlands Map, hand-drawn and to scale, is now available for purchase. Find your place on the Kentlands Map, read about the history of the Kentlands, and learn what makes a neo-traditional community like Kentlands so unique!
Maps are displayed and available for purchase at the Kentlands Clubhouse and the Kentlands Community Foundation office, at the Carriage House, next to the Arts Barn. They are also available for purchase on-line.
