5 Things We Love About Lake Oswego in September

THE WEATHER. I’ve always said that schools in Lake Oswego shouldn’t start until October 1 because we have some of our best weather in September. Typically the average high temperature drops about 9-10 degrees over the course of the month from 81 down to 77, but not below 61. Sounds pretty good to me which is why you want to plan to be outside taking it all in as much as you can. Read my previous blog about walks in Lake Oswego and get out and take one!

BARKS IN THE PARK. They say every dog has his day and in Lake Oswego that day is Thursday, September 9. The City of Lake Oswego is putting on a party for your favorite pooch complete with agility course, costume contest and pet-friendly vendors that might throw a few treats his or her way. The DJ-provided music should appeal to the canines as well as their owners. Thursday, September 9 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Hazelia Dog Park, 17800 SW Stafford Road.

CITY HALL RIBBON CUTTING. We’ve all watched it go up. Now’s the time to celebrate it and take a look inside. The ceremony takes place on Tuesday, September 21 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. with the ribbon cutting set for around 6:00 p.m. Activities include tours, music, atrium art sale, art display, booktique sale, games, interactive city trucks display, food trucks and free ice cream. 380 A Avenue.

FLORAL DESIGN AND WINE. Zupan’s is offering another of its popular floral arrangement workshops. This time the inspiration is being taken from Starburst color scheme and will feature local dahlias and roses. Cheese and charcuterie and wine are included as well as materials in the $125 fee. Reserve your spot online. 16380 Boones Ferry Rd., 503.210.4190.

GALLERY WITHOUT WALLS. While Lake Oswego’s Gallery Without Walls isn’t new, 12 new pieces have been added to the 2021-2023 rotating collection and by September they should all be installed and ready to view! If you’ve driven around town, you may have already spotted some of them, and I can tell you, I’m already a big fan! You can download a map of where to find the new pieces here. Take a walking tour and enjoy some of that September weather I talked about earlier before it leaves us!
