Lake Oswego

City parks, downtown art, and lush, forested lake vistas typify Lake Oswego, Oregon. Located on the west bank of the Willamette River just minutes south of Portland, Lake Oswego has many attractions for visitors to enjoy.

Take a leisurely ride on the historic Willamette shore trolley. The six mile rail line runs between Lake Oswego and Portland along the west bank of the Willamette River. Beautiful river views and a trip through “Oregon’s darkest tunnel” are a few of the highlights of the journey.

Downtown Lake Oswego offers fine shops and boutiques, and many different kinds of restaurants. Outdoor art graces each downtown block, and is enhanced by beautiful hanging baskets, plaza plantings and green trees everywhere.

Spring brings the farmer’s market season. Lake Oswego Farmers Market is held every Saturday from mid-May to mid-October. The European style market includes a wide variety of regional produce, baked goods and nursery stock, as well as live entertainment.

An historic walking tour guide is available from the Chamber of Commerce. It showcases the First Addition, the second oldest neighborhood in Lake Oswego. The tour includes houses built in many architectural styles, including Gothic, Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Vernacular and English Cottage.

With sightseeing, forest hiking, leisurely shopping, and many more unique attractions, Lake Oswego has something for everyone.
