About Forest Highlands

The main residential neighborhood, however, sits just south of SW. Boones Ferry Rd. and north of the Lake Oswego Country Club.
Home to approximately 3800 residents in the northern part of Lake Oswego, Forest Highlands is known for its large open spaces, beautiful estates, and naturally wooded lots.

There are several parks within the community including Pine Cone Park, a small little neighborhood park, and Woodmont Natural Park just north of Atwater Road, but both are primarily just green space with a little bit of trails.
