A walkway/boardwalk was constructed from Third Street to the Millennium Plaza Park fountain along the northern edge of Lakewood Bay. The walkway was planned as an important quality of life element for Lake Oswego residents desiring visual access to the lake and a safe pedestrian route along its edge. It was intended to make current use of the lake edge safer, more aesthetic, and easier to manage. Construction was completed Fall 2006. The pathway is home to the sculpture Sprout by Mike Suri, winner of the 2010 People's Choice award sponsored by the Arts Council of Lake Oswego.
