Lake Oswego really has cooled down this week, but real estate is still popping up. The sunny days are gone for just a bit, but its good for keeping things green and cleaning the pollen out of the air!
There are some amazing homes for sale in Lake Oswego. Let us know what you are looking for. The “sale pending” strips keep going up and with school winding down, there is sure to be a surge of new home buyers competing for what is on the market.
If you are new to Lake Oswego, then there are some basics you will need to know about. It is helpful, for example, if you are here for the schools to know which schools serve which parts of Lake Oswego. Another super big tip if you intend on using Oswego Lake at all is to know that it is a private lake. The lake is not open to the public, but access is given to the shareholders who either own Lake Oswego waterfront property or shareholders who are part of an easement in a surrounding neighborhood. If taking advantage of all that Oswego Lake has to offer is an important criteria for you then you need to be well aware of what your rights are to the lake and how they differ with each specific property.
There are a couple exceptions which open up the private lake to more than waterfront and easement holder property owners. These include the Lake Grove Swim Park for anyone who lives within its specified boundaries and there is also the Lake Oswego Swim Park on the other side of the lake. Here is what the city says about the Lake Oswego Swim Park on their site:
LAKE OSWEGO SWIM PARK is a public facility featuring a wading pool, intermediate section and lap pool under the supervision of certified lifeguards. The park is open to residents only at no charge. Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an individual 16 years or older. The “buddy system” will be enforced. No one will be allowed to swim alone.
