6 Things We Love About Lake Oswego in August

  • NATIONAL NIGHT OUT in your neighborhood. The City of Lake Oswego encourages residents to participate in the spirit of National Night Out by organizing block parties to get to know your neighbors on Tuesday, August 2. Register online and/or by calling Bonnie Hirshberger at 503.675.3992.
  • STORYWALK® in West Waluga Park. This innovative program enables kids and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time.
