Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley. Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem. Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
HOUSING DEVELOPMENT UPDATES
HOUSING DEVELOPMENT UPDATE 2-5-2014
In 2012 the City Council adopted a long range Strategic Plan that was developed by 30-40 members of the community. This group was from all parts of the community including business owners, educators, religious leaders, civic groups, city committees, and others.
At that meeting the group identified 3 concerns as being very important to the future of Oswego. They were housing, economic development, and tourism. They felt housing was our most crucial need and suggested 4 plots of land that would make good housing development sites.
