About Lake Oswego
The tranquil waters of Oswego Lake are the crown jewel of Oregon’s most affluent community. Less than 10 miles from downtown Portland, but a world away from the city, Lake Oswego is a quiet oasis with luxurious, million-dollar homes lining the shore and many more beautiful homes tucked into the forested hills surrounding the lake. Lake Oswego also boasts an upscale arts-focused town center, ample recreation opportunities, and exceptional schools that are ranked among the highest in the country.
Pick up a cupcake from Kyra’s Bake Shop (four-time winner of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars) and then wander the streets of town to discover the 80 outdoor sculptures that are part of the Arts Council of Lake Oswego’s Gallery Without Walls exhibit. You’ll find more art housed in the galleries around town. Enjoy a play at the Lakewood Center for the Arts or a take in film at the historic Lake Theater & Café. The lakeside cinema has been showing movies since 1940 and recently expanded to offer a full bar, café menu, and live music. Afterwards, sample a flight of craft beers while watching the sunset over the lake at Stickmen Brewing Company.
For a day on the links, you have two picturesque courses to choose from. The historic Oswego Lake Country Club is a prestigious members-only club with a myriad of amenities. On the other side of the lake, the Lake Oswego Public Golf Course, is a city-owned, 18-hole course lined with beautiful tree-lined fairways.
In addition to the golf course, the City of Lake Oswego manages a robust parks and recreation program. You can practice your serve at the indoor tennis center, splash with the kids at the swim park on the lake, or explore the 600-plus acres of parks and 23 miles of looping pathways around the city.
Lake Oswego offers an exceptionally high number of luxury homes, but there are smaller homes and condos available in a range of price tags. Homes in older districts of Lake Oswego reflect an array of early 20th century architectural styles, including English cottage, Tudor revival, Victorian and craftsman, while newer residential developments offer contemporary and modern designs.
