Mountain Park – Nature’s Neighborhood

By Sharon Bloudek, February 12, 2020

I’ve been hanging out in Mountain Park a bit more in recent years.  We lived there while doing a remodel and really loved it!  Most recently, I sold a condo to one of my buyers on Jefferson Parkway, and I helped a financial planner with a lease at Mountain Park Plaza, right next to Walter Mitty’s.  I’ve also made my kids volunteer with me (they love it!) for Meals on Wheels at the New Season’s Market. So I thought it was time I shared a little bit about it….

It’s a premier planned community developed by Carl Halvorson, a visionary Landscape Designer. A living experience fifty years in the making, unlike anywhere else in Oregon, exactly as it was envisioned to be, but much better in reality.

Nestled in the deeply forested hills surrounding Lake Oswego, the award-winning planned community of Mountain Park enjoys a wide range of amenities but its community is unified by its Clubhouse. Recently renovated, its 45,000 square foot, two-level recreation and community center, is a second home for many residents. The lazy river pool as part of the aquatic center, the many sport courts, fitness center and preschool are very popular with families. Though they have something for everyone within their walls.

Many parks and trails are also in the area, with 6 miles of trails that are perfect for walking or running within Mountain Park Clubhouse area. You’ll never be bored outdoors with a further seven parks and natural areas nearby.

Most of Mountain Park homes are in the Lake Oswego School District, Oregon’s top-rated school district. And commuting is easy considering its central location. At 958 feet, it has the highest elevation (and views!) in the City, and if you are lucky you will see all of Portland and even the coastal cascades on a clear day.
