King City in Ontario.
King City is a township in York Region north of Toronto, within the Greater Toronto Area in Ontario, Canada.
King City features a picturesque countryside, of which the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine are the most prominent visible geographical element. The Holland Marsh, considered to be Ontario's "vegetable basket", straddles King City Township and Bradford West Gwillimbury. King City is also known for its prestigious horse farms and cattle farms.
Though King City Township is predominantly rural, most of its residents are concentrated in the communities of King City, Nobleton, and Schomberg.
In the township, there are eleven sites designated Heritage Sites, including:
