Lake Oswego

Welcome to Lake Oswego

Lake Oswego is a city located near the Portland Metro hub. Located in the midst of the City of Lake Oswego is the lake of the same name.  It is a man-made lake, which came about during the age when the area was being used to mine iron. The smelt was run off into the lake. That was MANY YEARS AGO — well over one hundred.  There are no more iron plants in the area, and the Lake was converted into recreational use in the early 1900′s.

In times past, many Portland “city” dwellers purchased small parcels of land in Lake Oswego and built little cabins, using the cottages as vacation or weekend get-aways. The 15 miles from Downtown Portland made it a desirable spot for the affluent who wanted a little country setting to go to.

Lake Oswego has become a very affluent, vibrant, high demand area.

As of September 2013, there are 21 recognized Neighborhood Associations in Lake Oswego: Birdshill, Blue Heron ¤, Bryant ¤, North Shore-Country Club ¤, Evergreen ¤, First Addition, Forest Highlands, Glenmorrie, Hallinan Heights, Holly Orchard, Lake Grove, Lakewood ¤, McVey-South Shore ¤, Old Town, Palisades ¤, Rosewood, Skylands, Uplands, Waluga, Westlake, and Westridge.  (Associations including lakefront property are marked with a ¤ symbol.)

Lake Oswego maintains it’s own city, fire department and school district.

Near enough to downtown Portland, but separate and clearly a city in its own right, Lake Oswego is distinct and it’s clear why it is one of Metro Portland’s PREMIERE neighborhoods. A very good mix of established estates, eclectic condos, vibrant community, active recreation and pure charm.

Neighborhoods With Homes for Sale in Lake Oswego

Lake Oswego Has it All

Even its own lake — hence the “Lake” part of Lake Oswego — where boating, swimming, fishing and paddle boats are favorite activities.

Property owners may have “lake rights” built into their deer, and if near enough to the Lake, they may have mooring slips. Other properties has “access rights.” But who cares?!?

The Willamette River offers the public river access and has boat and kayak launches, picnic area, and other recreational uses.

Fun Fact About Lake Oswego

Little known fact; Lake Oswego has a sub-division planned by a J.R.R. Tolkien aficionado. I’m not making this up, there is: Hobbit Ct., Rivendell Dr., Lothlorien Way, Hillshire Way are actual streets names — and it’s a gorgeous area.
