Southwest Washington has a variety of diverse communities to choose from for those looking to relocate or purchase a new home. With the population of this region steadily growing, some of this new development has been spreading out to the northern and eastern edges of Clark County. Among the rolling hills and towering trees of north Clark County lies the small community of La Center. Once a busy hub for sternwheelers and steamboats on the East Fork Lewis River, then a booming timber town, La Center has a rich local history from the early days of Clark County.
Situated just north of Vancouver and with convenient access to I-5, La Center is a great location for anyone wanting a quieter life at a slower pace within easy reach of downtown Portland and the airport. Surrounded by mountains, lakes, and rivers, the area is a destination for those seeking outdoor recreational opportunities.
As a small community with a population of under 5,000 residents, the city leadership of La Center remains committed to the conservation of open spaces, wildlife, natural resources, and providing recreational opportunities to enrich the lives of the community through thriving, livable neighborhoods. La Center has a lot to offer its residents such as a quaint downtown area, beautiful parks, trails, great schools, and community events. Described by a resident as a quiet and peaceful place to live and raise a family, the city of La Center retains its small-town atmosphere.
Highland Terrace, Evergreen Homes’ new neighborhood in La Center, is nestled on a hillside overlooking the river valley. Just north of town, Highland Terrace is conveniently located and is just a 5-minute drive to I-5 and approximately 25 minutes to downtown Vancouver. With 53 large lots available in the first phase of the 95 lot neighborhood, you can choose the perfect fit for your one-level, 2-story, or daylight basement home.
Plenty of recreational activities are close by, including soccer and baseball fields, miles of hiking and biking trails to explore, kayaking or canoeing on the East Fork Lewis River, and outdoor entertainment at Sternwheeler Park’s amphitheater. La Center also benefits from an exceptional school system, offering smaller class sizes and highly qualified staff. Make your next home in picturesque Highland Terrace.
