Kenton is a neighborhood in North Portland known as the home of a Paul Bunyan statue, former Portland Mayor Sam Adams, and the former site of Vanport City.

It was built as a company town by the Swift Meat Packing Company starting in 1911 or so.

Kenton's northern border is formed by North Portland Harbor, the channel of the Columbia River that separates the area from Hayden Island. Kenton's eastern boundary is Interstate 5. Its southern boundary is North Lombard. The western border (traveling from north to south, respectively) follows N Portland Road, N Columbia Boulevard, and N Chautauqua Boulevard. The Columbia Slough passes through Kenton.
