Kendall Park is a census-designated place and unincorporated community located within South Brunswick Township, in Middlesex County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the CDP's population was 9,339.[1] Kendall Park is also a post office with its own ZIP code (08824) that encompasses the entire CDP, as well as some surrounding areas.[2]

Kendall Park gets its name from its builder, Herbert Kendall, who built it as a planned community between 1956 and the early 60s. the development was built in three stages: the initial development in 1956-7 (between New Road and Sand Hill Road), the Constable development in 1959 (south of New Road), followed by the Greenbrook development (north of Sand Hill Road) a few years later. The initial development offered two styles of 3-bedroom, 1½ bath ranch-style homes, mostly built on 1/3 acre lots, typically selling for around $16,000 in 1957. The subsequent sections offered a wider selection of styles, including 4-bedroom ranches and 4-bedroom colonial-style homes. The development of Kendall Park doubled the population of South Brunswick Township and marked the beginning of its transformation from a rural farming area to a suburban bedroom community. The Hoagland-Clark House, which dates back to the late 18th century, is a remnant of the earlier era, and was identified by Preservation New Jersey as one of the most vulnerable landmarks in New Jersey.

Brunswick Acres, Cambridge, Constable, Dayton-Deans are all elementary schools located within Kendall Park that are part of the South Brunswick Public Schools.
