To the Evergreen Neighborhood
 
The Evergreen Neighborhood is located in the heart of Lake Oswego, Oregon just south of Portland.  We are fortunate to have Lakewood Bay as our southern border and the core of the beautiful downtown Lake Oswego along our eastern border.  The Evergreen Neighborhood Association was formed to ensure that the charm and quality of life of this neighborhood is either maintained or improved upon.  Our quaint neighborhood is exceptional due to:
 
  • Walkability - walk the tree lined streets or along Lakewood Bay and enjoy the serenity of the outdoors.  In addition, numerous services, shops, and eating establishments are within short walking distances.
  • Parks - two city parks are within our borders with the very popular Millennium park offering a number of events during the comfortable summer months.  (see below)
  • Lakewood Bay Community Club - access to the lake is available as a member of the Lakewood Bay easement which provides a means to enjoy the lake in a number of capacities.  (see below)
  • Restaurants - the neighborhood is surrounded by locally owned quaint restaurants and upscale fine dining.
  • Shopping - small one of a kind shops and boutiques as well as nationally known retailers are either within walking distance or a short drive away.
  • Lakewood Theater Company - approximately 1/2 mile away is a 50 year old local theater that offers first-run, year-round popular and classic plays in two staging areas of the Lakewood Center for the Arts.
  •    
  • Public Art  - the City of Lake Oswego has made it a priority to invest in public art.  The neighborhood is fortunate to have on display a number of pieces from prominent artists. 
  • Library - the award winning Lake Oswego public library is located just 4 blocks to the north.
  • City Services - City Hall and the Lake Oswego Police Department are within our neighborhood boundaries while the post office and fire department are approximately 2 blocks away.
  • Schools - the Lake Oswego School District is known for its excellence in education with over 80% of students going to college.  Children in the neighborhood will go to Forest Hills Elementary, Lake Oswego Junior High, and Lake Oswego Senior High.  Our Lady of the Lake (located in the neighborhood) offers an option for private schooling, grades K-8.
  • Other Activities - within walking distance or a short drive from the neighborhood one can enjoy the following: Indoor Tennis Center, Municipal Golf Course, Skate Park, Swim Park, Charlie S. Brown Water Sports Center, Adult Community Center, Lake Twin Cinema, and the Willamette Shore Trolley.  In addition, there are several places of worship nearby.

    Millennium Park Plaza is an attraction for all ages.  It is not uncommon to see people picnicking in the grass, children playing in the plaza, couples enjoying views of the lake from strategically located benches, dogs taking strolls with their owners along the water's edge, and art enthusiasts viewing numerous sculptures by renowned artists. 
     
    Mid-May through the end of October, the City of Lake Oswego sponsors numerous events such as:
    • Summer Concerts featuring local and national talent.
