This delightful town is filled with boutiques, fine restaurants, city parks, the Willamette shore trolley, historic neighborhoods, the Lake Oswego Farmers’ Market, and gorgeous scenic views surrounding the lake.

With all of it’s amenities, Lake Oswego is perhaps best known for it’s thriving arts scene consisting of the performing arts centers, galleries, public works of art, and popular community events like the annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts.
