New Maryland has a population of approximately 4,500 and is located on the southern border of Fredericton, New Brunswick's Capital City. New Maryland has a wide variety of recreational and leisure programs with easy access to Fredericton's diverse cultural facilities, universities and other recreational facilities. Having a municipal tax rate among the lowest in the Province, many planned subdivisions, oversized building lots and numerous spacious green fields, New Maryland is indeed an ideal community in which to live!
The local region is made up of agricultural and forest lands, giving New Maryland a distinctly rural character. The Village is committed to maintaining its rural flavour. Because of New Maryland's emphasis on green space and environmental protection, an active recycling program operates in the Village. Future goals focus on an enhanced water supply, new subdivision parkland as well as a network of walking trails.
