Our community has just faced a historic storm with extreme winds, freezing temperatures, thousands of power outages, and unfathomable tree damage. A huge thank you to our community, neighbors that took care of each other, and City staff for going above and beyond and persevering through it all. Remember, we are all in this together.
Due to the recent winter storm, some parks are temporarily closed for safety reasons. Fallen trees and debris pose hazards, and paths still need to be cleared. Please respect the closure signs and caution tape, and do not move barricades to access areas. Because of the volume and severity of damage from the storm, it will take crews some time to respond and get the proper equipment to clear spaces. Click below for more details on closures.
Thank you for your patience. The safety of our community is our top priority, and our dedicated parks teams are working diligently to get you back into the parks!

The City of Lake Oswego is in the process of updating its existing Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (NHMP) and is seeking input on the draft 2024 Lake Oswego NHMP.
The NHMP identifies natural hazards that may impact Lake Oswego and provides the CIty with a set of goals, action items, and resources designed to reduce risk from future natural disaster events. With re-adoption of the plan, Lake Oswego will maintain its eligibility to apply for federal funding towards natural hazard mitigation projects.
The City is currently accepting applications from non-profit organizations that wish to apply for financial assistance under the categories of special services, and social and cultural grants.
Applications are due by 5 p.m., Thursday, February 29.
