Spotlight on Lake Oswego f

It is a quick trip from downtown Portland to the acclaimed community of Lake Oswego. Residential real estate in Lake Oswego spans the gamut from long time established older neighborhoods surrounding the country club to newer planned communities, waterfront and view properties and neighborhoods within walking distance to all of one’s everyday needs. Twice over, it has been the site of the annual “Street of Dreams”, Portland’s annual showcase of new high end residences. It also offers several options for senior living including the Mary’s Woods living center.

Most of the city’s businesses are located downtown near the Willamette River, which is the city’s eastern boundary, or on the west end in Lake Grove near Interstate 5. In recent years, a major commitment and investment has been made in redeveloping the downtown region bringing new restaurants, trendy boutiques and quality shopping, more parks, etc. to this popular community.

The city boasts 10 parks, 31 open spaces and nature areas, and 43 recreational facilities for the enjoyment of all its approximately 36,345 residents. Millennium Park borders Oswego Lake and is the scene of the colorful and fun Saturday Market, open air concert, holiday tree lighting gatherings, and more.

Lake Oswego has police and fire department, a heavily used library, an adult community center and an award-winning senior center. There is also a city-owned water sports center on the Willamette River, two public swimming facilities on the 405-acre Oswego Lake, dog parks, 18-hole public golf course and an indoor tennis center.

Schools in Lake Oswego rank among the best in country. The district has an enrollment of approximately 7,000 students among its nine elementary schools, two junior high and two six A high schools. (see link to school district below). Both high schools offering opportunities for higher level academics, competitive and recreational sports, the arts, theater, music and more. An impressive 90% of high school graduates continue onto college and the list of accepting colleges is heavily saturated with some of the best and most difficult to get into institutions across the nation.

So why is this unique community called Lake Oswego? The lake of course! Traversing through the center of this geographical region, this private man-made, 415 acre lake offers year round water sports, Fourth of July firework extravaganza, holiday boat parades, swimming facilities and many wonderful waterfront residences.
