All About Kenton
Perfectly compact, Kenton is a magical nook in up-and-coming North Portland. Although it is adjacent to Arbor Lodge, St. Johns, and Piedmont, Kenton gives the sense of being totally self-sufficient—and many homebuyers choose it for this reason.
The neighborhood is small, safe, and simple. Independent, locally owned businesses thrive here. The public library offers a sense of “centralness” and nearby shops, restaurants, cafes, and grocery stores makes it easy to keep close to home. The nearby MAX line offers quick access to downtown Portland.
Kenton continues to develop, with plenty of charm and vitality that draws new residents. Although many other neighborhoods have gone through quick transitions, becoming real estate magnets overnight, Kenton is authentic, vibrant, and diverse. This tiny community stays true to its roots.
