Welcome to the official web site of the Hanwell rural community, one of New Brunswick’s fastest growing municipalities, located along Route 640 known as the “Hanwell Road”. Thank you for visiting!

Hanwell was incorporated as a rural community on May 23, 2014 under Regulation 2014-30 of the Municipalities Act. The community boundaries cover an area of 148.7 square km in York County from the southern boundaries of the City of Fredericton to just beyond Yoho Lake. It encompasses a portion of the Ludford Subdivision off the Mazerolle Settlement Road on the west side and goes to Village of New Maryland and the New Maryland Local Service District on the eastern side. Hanwell is accessed from the Trans Canada Highway at exits 271 and 281.

Hanwell has a population of over 4700. There are more than 1500 families and 125 businesses. The Council of Hanwell strives to maintain a rural feel in the community, "Inspired by Nature", while providing a high level of services to the residents by working closely with the Department of Environment and Local Government and contracting directly for some services.

Hanwell rural community is having a chipping volunteer day Sunday October 23rd from 10am to 2pm... (or until folks pack up). POSTPONED TO SUNDAY OCTOBER 30


You are welcome to arrive/depart when you need to but we will start moving the chipper into the trails around 10 am... There is supposed to be some rain on Saturday so we will verify the trail conditions before taking the chipper into the trails.

There are only a couple of good weekends left before the ground freeze comes... please show support for the park and community and come on out!


You will be asked to sign a volunteer form; please seek out Chris Weadick when you arrive or look in the mail box of the gazebo before you go into the trails to help volunteer.


Please share to your peers, challenge a friend to come on out, and post on social media.
