Ensenada Partido is a district (a "partido") of Buenos Aires Province, Argentina, belonging to the Greater La Plata area, just south of the Gran Buenos Aires urban conglomerate.

The provincial district has a population of about 51,448 inhabitants in an area of only convert|135|km2|sqmi|0|lk=on|abbr=on; its capital city is Ensenada, located convert|27|km|mi|0|lk=on|abbr=on from Buenos Aires and 5 km from La Plata.


The district spans the area historically known as Ensenada de Barragán (Barragán's Cove). The old coastal site forms part of what is today Santiago Island. A military battery and defensive wall was built there in the early XVIII century, known as Fuerte Barragán ("Fort Barragán"). On 5 May 1801 Viceroy Marqués de Avilés founded the village of Ensenada. In 1882, the government of Dardo Rocha declared it as temporary provincial capital while the new city of La Plata was being built.
