Oregon Appeals Court upholds restrictions on access to Oswego Lake – Bravo

Oregon Local News – Oregon Appeals Court upholds restrictions on access to Oswego Lake

“The ruling ties into a long-standing dispute about whether the lake itself should be considered a public waterway— an issue the Appeals Court did not resolve as part of the current case. But with most of the lake bordered by private property, upholding the City’s restrictions appears to eliminate the only potential means of public access.

The specific regulation at the core of the case is a 2012 City parks rule that prohibits people from using Sundeleaf Plaza, Millennium Plaza Park or the Headlee Walkway to launch boats or otherwise enter Oswego Lake. City officials say the rule was based on safety and liability factors — none of the City-owned spaces are designed for swimming or boat access — as well as concerns about invasive species.”
