Clark County has purchased a 10-acre property at 11515 NW 16th Ave. in Felida for use as a future community park and trail head.
Plans call for the site to become a community park and trail head for the future expansion of Cougar Creek Trail, which runs between NW 119th Street and the Salmon Creek Greenway Trail, when funding becomes available for design and construction. This acquisition also provides a necessary connection to expand Cougar Creek Trail south of NW 119th Street to Hazel Dell Avenue. The Cougar Creek Trail expansion is part of the Greater Clark Parks District program to add about 7 miles of new trail throughout the unincorporated urban area of Clark County.
On a personal note, I grew up in Felida, on that same street, and played in those woods, and can hardly wait for it to become a Community Park and be able to bring my kids there. :-)
