Lake Oswego (c-eniconɒsˈwiːɡoʊ) is a city located primarily in Clackamas County in the U.S. state of Oregon.

Located south of Portland surrounding the 405 acre (1.6 km2) Oswego Lake, the town was founded in 1847 and incorporated as Oswego in 1910. The city was the hub of Oregon's brief iron industry in the late 19th century and is today an affluent suburb of Portland. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 36,619, a 3.8% increase over the 2000 population of 35,278.
