Welcome to Our Community
Though people have lived in Covington for centuries, the city wasn’t incorporated until 1997. We’ve seen exponential growth since then, and there’s never been a better time to call this friendly town home.
The people who call Covington home were drawn here for the beautiful surroundings and small-town feel. We also enjoy the convenience of stores like Home Depot, Costco, and Walmart, and dining at Applebee’s and Red Robin right here in our own community. And locals and folks from surrounding areas come here for their healthcare needs.
Along with that small-town feel comes a close-knit community and a sense of security. Neighbors look out for each other and we feel safe in our homes and parks. Our parks have beautiful walking and biking trails, some with views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascades. The Covington Aquatic Center provides year-round swimming, classes and party rentals.
In July, residents come together for Covington Days, a weekend long celebration with a parade, booths, music, kid’s games and a watermelon eating content. During the holiday season, we gather to light the tree at Don Henning roundabout and the Aquatics Center hosts a movie-viewing float-in each Saturday before Christmas.
If you’d like to learn more about Covington, let us know. We’d love to show you around and help you find your perfect home.
