Welcome to the Township of King's Official website. Recently re-designed, we hope you will find it user-friendly, helpful and informative whether you are a resident, a businessperson or a visitor.
As you drive a few minutes north of Toronto and watch the urban sprawl turn into the open vastness of rolling green countryside, you’ll know you have entered our beautiful King. This is what sets King apart, and this is what our residents love about their home.
Minutes from Highway 400 you can go for a hike in the Happy Valley Forest and be amazed at the silence of wind through trees with not the sound of a single car. There is no other place like it, so quiet and yet so close to the bustle of the Greater Toronto Area.
With its lakes, streams, rolling hills and abundant forested areas, King could easily be mistaken for a strictly agricultural and rural Township. But, nestled into the Oak Ridges Moraine, King has many villages and hamlets, where you will find entertainment, wonderful restaurants, delightful shopping and pleasant accommodation.
Drive a little further north and enter the plains of the Holland Marsh growing area. The Vegetable Basket of North America, the Holland Marsh puts fresh vegetables on the tables of Canadians and Americans alike. There’s even a vineyard tucked away in this fascinating little geographic gem that is lined with canals and has its own distinct micro-climate.
Explore. There is so much to see and do year round, from professional events to a full calendar of local, volunteer-run activities and festivals. In this community of communities, you can be busier than you ever thought possible 'in the country'.
I invite you to visit King, and fall in love as so many do. Hike, cycle, eat, shop and enjoy the country just above the city. Why not move your family here? We want you. Why not move your business here? We’ll help you.
Please bookmark this site and we will keep you up to date on many of the attractions that make King a great place to visit, a great place to invest, and an even better place to live.
We hope you will plan to visit us soon.
Mayor Steve Pellegrini
