Willamette River Oregon
Painting - Oil On Canvas
While living in Oregon I lived in Lake Oswego. I painted this off of a photo I took at George Rogers City Park. This was one of my first paintings with flowers. I went on a lot of walks along the paths at this park with my wife and kids. History
George Rogers Park is Lake Oswego's first community park and one of its most diverse. Situated on the Willamette River, the park is the site of significant Native American activity over 10,000 years ago, as well as the center of Lake Oswego's industrial iron history. The park is 26 acres and contains athletic fields, tennis courts, children's playground, picnicing, riverfront access, walking trails, and a large natural area. Of particular interest to history buffs is the "Iron Furnace", which is listed on the National Historic register and one of the few reminders of Lake Oswego's industrial past. One of the best views of the Willamette River can be found near the furnace in the lower park.
In 2005, the lower portion of the park along the Willamette River, received a much needed upgrade allowing for renewed views and pedestrian access to the river, restored landscaping, and habitat restoration fronting Oswego Creek and the Willamette River.
