to the Evergreen Neighborhood
Welcome to our new board, elected at our annual meeting May 2.
Our next board meeting is set for November 7.

The Evergreen Neighborhood is located in the heart of Lake Oswego, Oregon just south of Portland.  We are fortunate to have Lakewood Bay as our southern border and the core of beautiful downtown Lake Oswego along our eastern border.  The Evergreen Neighborhood Association (ENA) was formed to ensure that the charm and quality of life of this neighborhood is both maintained and improved upon.  We have approximately 42 commercial establishments and 373 residential units, with mostly single-family homes, but also condos and apartments. Our neighborhood is exceptional due to:
  • Walkability - walk the tree-lined streets or along Lakewood Bay and enjoy the serenity of the outdoors.  In addition, numerous services, shops, and eating establishments are within walking distances.
  • Parks - two city parks are within our borders with the very popular Millennium park offering a number of events during the comfortable summer months.  (see below)
  • Lakewood Bay Community Club - access to the lake is available to members of the Lakewood Bay easement which provides a means to enjoy the lake in a number of capacities.  (see below)
  • Restaurants - the neighborhood has many locally-owned restaurants with casual and upscale fine dining.
  • Shopping - small shops and boutiques as well as nationally-known retailers are within walking distance or a short drive away.
  • Lakewood Center for the Arts - located nearby, LCA produces first-run, year-round musicals and plays in two staging areas.  The center offers classes, and has a new artist training center. Lakewood Center
  • The Lake Theater & Cafe - in the restored Sundeleaf-designed building, this venue serves tasty bistro food with both inside & lakeside outdoor seating. Plus great movies!  Lake Theater & Cafe

  • Other Activities are within walking distance or a short drive from the neighborhood. One can enjoy the following: Indoor Tennis Center, Municipal Golf Course, Swim Park, Charlie S. Brown Water Sports Center, Adult Community Center, and the Willamette Shore Trolley.  In addition, there are several places of worship nearby.

    Millennium Park Plaza is an attraction for all ages.  It is not uncommon to see people picnicking in the grass, children playing in the plaza, couples enjoying views of the lake from strategically located benches, dogs taking strolls with their owners along the water's edge, and art enthusiasts viewing numerous sculptures by renowned artists. 
    Mid-May through the end of October, the City of Lake Oswego sponsors numerous events such as:
