We enjoy visiting the Clark County community known as Felida. Its name has an interesting story too. When the Post Office was established in 1890, the name Powley was submitted to honor an area resident. The name was denied, but the Post Office suggested instead, “Polly.” The postmaster thought the name sounded like a parrot and remarked, “they might as well name the post office after my cat.” Therefore, he submitted “Thomas,” the cat’s name, as well as, “Tomcat, and “Felidae,” Latin for big cats. Felida was approved!
Points of Interest: You can access the Salmon Creek Greenway Trail from the Felida bridge at NW 36th Avenue. The trail offers a scenic natural getaway in northern Vancouver. Paved, tree-lined trails wind along the creek and through wetlands for 3.88 miles and give runners, walkers, and bikers sightings of deer, rabbits, raccoons, beavers and many kinds of birds.
Long known for its pastoral settings, Felida is changing. Many of the area’s historic farms have been purchased by developers – replacing farmlands with large subdivisions. You can still find older view homes on larger parcels for resale, but most new construction tends towards smaller lots. Fortunately, we can found custom homes being built on larger lots. For example, one neighborhood we have been visiting with clients is the Reserve at Ashley Ridge. While laid out like a traditional subdivision, most homes sit on large lots – some with greenbelts and views of Lake River, or Salmon Creek Greenway. In other words, view homes with “elbow room for the soul”.
