Kenton Real Estate

Neighborhood Overview

Just 10 minutes from downtown and home to the Portland International Raceway and Portland Expo Center, the Kenton neighborhood has perhaps the best known mascot of all of the city’s districts: a 31 foot tall statue of Paul Bunyan, erected in 1959 to commemorate Oregon State’s centennial celebration and one of the recent inductees into the National Register of Historic Places.

As an affordable working class neighborhood in the Northeast section of Portland, Kenton is filled with attractive and reasonably priced homes, grand historic buildings, and community pride.

Parks & Recreation

The 340-plus acre Heron Lakes Golf Course and historic site lies at the edge of the Kenton neighborhood and was listed as one of the nation’s top public courses by Golf Digest. Several charming day parks can be found in this area, and The Kenton Historic Firehouse, built by the city and dedicated in 1913, is a popular site for weddings, private parties and community events.

Real Estate

Most of the homes in the Kenton neighborhood were built between 1920 and 1940, and range from cozy Bungalows to classic East Portland styles.

Zip Codes

The Kenton neighborhood uses the 97217 ZIP Code.
