What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Lake Oswego

Neighborhood is mixed with young and older people. Easy to walk to restaurants, shops. Close to accessible highways.

I like going to the park and I would like bars to be around along with more resturants and I also like to walk around

I like that the neighbors don't go out of their way to talk to me. And it's pet friendly. I don't go anywhere with family near the neighborhood.

Things I like about my neighborhood is the view of the mountain and the overall the environment and people are perfect, I always feel safe and in a peaceful state.
