The City of King City is a small community nestled between the Tualatin River and the south slope of Bull Mountain in Washington County, Oregon.
King City was incorporated in 1966. The city's population is approx. 3225.

The area enjoys excellent schools, and a uniquely diverse array of cultural and recreational activities. Only an hour's drive from the beach and mountains and less than a half-hour to downtown Portland, Washington County enjoys the benefits of a healthy urban and rural environment. King City perches on the edge of the region's Urban Growth Boundary, where Washington County transitions to nurseries, wineries and other farm and forest enterprises.

King City enjoys a unique status in Washington County. It was originally chartered as an over-55-retirement community, with convenient, attractive housing centered around a golf course and civic center with nearby neighborhood shopping. Over the decades others have discovered its charm. Today, King City includes vibrant new neighborhoods with residents of all ages and a very attractive new city park. Good services and modest taxes are the hallmark of our city.
