Welcome to Townofkent.org
A Community Run Website

The Town of Kent, (often known as Kent Lakes), sits high on the spectacular Hudson Highlands 60 miles north of New York City in the north central portion of Putnam County.

Within our borders are two State Parks, three State Multiple Use Areas, a portion of the Appalachian National Scenic Trail (see Tourism), and thousands of acres of spectacular open spaces under the permanent protection of the NYC Department of Environmental Protection.

We're also home to a dozen sizable lakes and their vacation homes, now mostly year round communities for our 15,000 friendly residents. We welcome you to our community run home on the 'net and hope you'll find us a pleasant place to live, to visit and to do business. Contact us!
