In addition to a number of quaint towns and villages, King includes some of the GTA’s largest expanses of forested space.
King City, in the district’s southwest corner, serves as the main commercial and cultural hub. Home to a growing number of residential subdivisions, the community has become a popular bedroom community-albeit one that maintains its small-town charm. To the west, Nobleton offers a more tranquil living experience surrounded by farmland and several conservation reserves. Several other hamlets are clustered along major roads, but much of the rest of King is home to farms, valleys and nature preserves such as Pottageville Swamp Conservation Area.
