Lake Oswego is has access to two premier bodies of water for outdoor recreation. The 405-acre Oswego Lake is surrounded by homes and a walking trail route for residents to enjoy. Lakewood Bay connects to Oswego Lake in the northeast, and the Willamette River borders Lake Oswego on its eastern edge. Many residents with lakefront homes have their own boat docks, while others can launch hand-carried watercraft such as canoes, kayaks or paddle boards from private swim parks. If water sports aren't your cup of tea, you can still grab a beer and a bite at Stickmen Brewing Company's lakeside patio. Willamette River access from George Rogers Park or Foothills Park allow residents to fully enjoy the water recreation near Portland whether by jet ski, kayak or other maritime vessel.
