What Do You Think of These New Slogans for Lake Oswego?

Live where you play reciteIt has been a while since Lake Oswego had a motto. Back in the 1860s, iron found in the Oswego hills gave hope to a “Pittsburgh of the West.” When that didn’t materialize, land developers pitched the lakeside town as a place where you could “Live Where You Play.”

I’d have to say that marketing slogan still fits. Boaters and swimmers fill Oswego Lake during the summer, crowds descend on city parks to listen to concerts, and children fill playgrounds, kick soccer balls on fields and are entertained by everything from visiting puppet theaters to traveling theater groups all year long.

As a Realtor in Lake Oswego, I’ve been marketing this town as a place to live for over 25 years and decided I’d like to see if we could find another tagline that explains why Lake Oswego is such a great place to live. A client of mine, reminiscing about what the town felt like when he was growing up said, it’s “Where Mayberry RFD meets Happy Days.”

Here are some of my recommendations. I’d love to hear from you. Leave your most creative slogans that promote the quality of life here in Lake Oswego in the comments section. See what you can come up with! And let me know which of my suggestions is your favorite.
