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.
