Kingsley is a city in Jefferson County, Kentucky, United States. The population was 428 at the 2000 census. It is roughly a triangle of land between Taylorsville Road, Tyler Lane and Byron Avenue. The city is directly southwest of Bowman Field.

It contracts an independent police force in cooperation with two other small cities, Strathmoor Village and Strathmoor Manor.[1] The three cities have occasionally discussed merging in order to increase their political clout in Jefferson County.[2]

Many years ago the community was part of Farmington, the once sprawling farm of the Speed family. On March 1, 1924, developer C.C. Hieatt purchased 46.063 acres (186,410 m2) off Taylorsville Road and created the subdivision of Kingsley as an extension of the Strathmoor neighborhood. On December 21, 1939, Kingsley was incorporated a sixth class city. The Tree Board was established after it was noted that many of the older trees were dying or in poor health. In 2003, the National Arbor Day Foundation approved the application for the City to receive formal status as a Tree City USA. Many new trees have been planted in residents' front yards and Kingsley Green Park because of grants.[3]
