Lake Oswego is a city in Clackamas County, Oregon,
United States. It is located south of Portland and surrounds the
private 405-acre Oswego Lake. As of the 2000 census, the
city had a total population of 35,278.
Lake Oswego is notable for its reputation as one of the most affluent
suburbs of Portland. In 2000, the city had a median income of
$71,597, up from $57,499 in 1990. Additionally, like the rest of the
Portland metropolitan area, house prices have grown rapidly; the
median value in 2000 was $296,200, over twice what it was in 1990. The city has some of the highest valued real estate in the state, particularly the homes overlooking the lake.
Oswego Lake is a private artificial lake managed by the Lake Board. A
house with a view of Oswego Lake, or better yet a house that backs
onto the lake, is likely to be very expensive and much sought after.
This lake is navigable, and on a weekend, many small boats may be
found plying its waters. There is a dock at the east end of the lake,
where boaters can dock, disembark and go to the nearby movie theater
or a nearby restaurant.
