Kenton (Portland, OR)

Kenton is definitely evolving and ready to show the greater Portland area that it has a special uniqueness to it.  Neighborhood locals are friendly, approachable and have a deep sense of community.  Located in North Portland and bordered by Arbor Lodge, St. Johns, and Piedmont neighborhoods, Kenton is in close proximity to the Max light rail which is located on nearby Interstate Avenue, giving residents easy access to the rest of the city.
