Welcome to Auburn, Washington

Auburn is one of the oldest towns in the Pacific Northwest and one of Washington’s earliest cities, dating back to 1891. Auburn is centrally located between Tacoma and Seattle, Washington’s two largest cities. Auburn has experienced sudden growth. New businesses have come to the community, others have expanded, and efforts have begun to encourage businesses to relocate to our business-friendly city.

We are surrounded by natural beauty, with opportunities to enjoy year-round outdoor activities. Within the city boundaries there are 30 parks, four golf courses and two large swimming pools, and within a short distance you can hike or bike along the White and Green River trails or the Interurban Trail.

Neighboring cities of Algona and Pacific are interwoven with Auburn and are represented collectively by the Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce. The mayors of each of these cities work collaboratively for the betterment of the region. Each city offers its own amenities and unique charm. Algona is a small community of 1.3 square miles and Pacific of only 2.4 square miles. Though small, these communities are positively affecting the continued growth and success of our region in King/Pierce County.
