Tucked away where you'd least expect it, George Rogers Park has a little beachfront on the Willamette, both more soigné and bijou than Sauvie Island's. Plus a short but lovely hiking trail and a good playground.
Dawn until dusk every day (I think).
Bear in mind that these photos were taken in December. It’s brighter and (even) prettier in the summer!
Not a whole lot, although downtown Lake Oswego has a lovely, child-friendly farmers’ market on Saturdays in the summer months.
If you fancy hanging out at a beach on the Willamette or Columbia, other options include Sauvie Island, Kelley Point Park and – if you must – Elk Rock Island. Another very pretty, tucked-away spot not too far away is Marshall Park.
