(Lake Oswego, OR) -- A Clackamas County Circuit Court judge is ruling that Oswego Lake does fall under the state's public trust doctrine and that the public has a right to access the lake through public parks. The rest of the property around the lake is privately owned and the public isn't allowed to swim or put boats in at the public parks. The lawsuit has been underway for a decade. The city contends the parks weren't designed for swimming or to safely launch boats. The judge will decide in July whether that's an acceptable limitation.
