Nestled in the picturesque Tualatin Valley and within easy access of Interstate 5, the well-established, 55-and-better community of King City is just 15 miles from downtown Portland and 45 minutes from Portland International Airport. Salem, the state capital, is a 45-minute drive south through the sprawling farmlands of the Willamette Valley. King City is also within 90 miles of the beautiful Pacific Ocean beaches, the main route to which passes through the rolling hills of Oregon’s flourishing wine country. If that weren’t enough, the famous Cascade Mountains resorts of Bend and Sisters, Mount Hood and the Columbia River Gorge are all within a short drive from King City.
Clustered along the community’s cul-de-sacs and thoroughfares are 643 single-family homes on low-maintenance lots that allow you to spend your time where it counts–enjoying yourself. Also available are 197 apartments, 233 townhouses, and 214 condominiums, many with striking mountain and valley views. The beauty of the community is enhanced by carefully manicured open spaces.
Close to all KCCA homes are full-service shopping centers including banks, retail and grocery stores, restaurants, health-service providers, car-care facilities and public transportation. A local police department and fire and emergency medical services are nearby as well.
The King City Civic Association is managed by an administrator, support staff and an elected board of directors. Fostering an active retirement lifestyle are common areas including Clubhouse, the Crown Center and the Arts and Crafts building, which are home to more than 50 clubs and other organizations. A challenging nine-hole golf course, championship lawn bowling green, shuffle-board courts, an outdoor pool and an Aquatic Center with a pool, lap pool and spa highlight the association’s first-class facilities. In addition, a well-staffed, 12,000-volume library offers up-to-date large-print editions, books on tape/CD and many periodicals.
KCCA members have ample opportunities to pursue their interests in a range of activities including political, civic and support groups, as well as hobbies and games of all types.
