Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation presents the incomparable Millennium Dance Band for an evening of dancing! Singles and couples are invited to put on their dancing shoes and waltz the night away.

On Friday, February 14, from 7-9pm, join us for a Valentine's Day Sock Hop!
Tree trimming will occur this month in several areas of the City. The tree trimming is in advance of road paving and maintenance that will begin late spring through summer. A certified arborist will manage the work. Tree branches above and near streets will be trimmed to minimize the risk of being broken by large trucks and equipment necessary for paving roads or applying slurry seal to roads.
