Parks & Recreation Classes & Activities

Parks & Recreation produces seasonal catalogs that provide the most up-to-date information about classes and activities, special events and camps. Registration for residents of Lake Oswego begins the Monday after you receive the catalog. Lake Oswego residents receive priority placement in classes and activities. Residents know immediately if they are accepted into a class or placed on a wait list. Non-resident registrations are accepted, but held on separate wait lists for about one week and then processed on a first registered basis. The current Parks & Recreation catalog is digitally available.

You can have a copy of the current catalog mailed to you by calling the Registrar at 503-675-2549. In addition to the published catalog, you can find all our classes and activities on the Online Registration website.


Scholarships are available for those who qualify. Please read more information about our scholarship program.
