The schools in Lake Oswego district are ranked towards the top in the state. The city has many amenities like shopping, restaurants, parks of different types with walking trails which are enjoyed by people of all ages. The Lake Oswego community is a great town/city to raise a family in being located between Portland and West Linn. I believe the size is approx. 37,000 - 39,000 residents.
