Welcome to the Kingston Borough

The Municipality of Kingston is a beautiful, tree-lined, bedroom community located in the heart of northeastern Pennsylvania. Kingston was first settled in 1771 and officially incorporated as a borough in 1857.

Kingston is a Home Rule Municipality governed by an executive mayor and a seven-member legislative council. Council Members are elected to four-year terms, which are staggered. The Mayors term is also four years. A full-time administrator is responsible for the daily management of the community.

Kingston is a model residential community and an excellent place to raise a family. The community prides itself on service and staffs full-time professionals to serve its residents and businesses. Our professional fire and ambulance service has a response time of only three minutes to any home or business in Kingston. Our full-time Police Department, one of Luzerne County’s best, provides around-the-clock protection and service. Our Public Works Department ensures that our streets are plowed, our public facilities maintained, and that the Municipality looks great year-round.

Kingston offers a wide variety of indoor activities at the Kingston Recreation Center, which include: basketball and racquetball courts, state of the art strength and cardiovascular fitness equipment, computer amusements, pool tables, etc.

Outdoor recreation includes seven outdoor parks and playgrounds, three tot lots, a lighted softball field, six tennis courts, and an Olympic-plus size pool.
