Oromocto is located on the west bank of the Saint John River at the mouth of the Oromocto River, approximately 20 kilometres southeast of Fredericton. The town's name is derived from the name of the Oromocto River; "oromocto" is thought to have originated from the Maliseet word welamukotuk which means "deep water".
The community of New Maryland has a population of approximately 4,400 and is adjacent to the city of Fredericton. Boasting municipal tax rate among the lowest in the province, the many planned subdivisions, the oversized building lots and the numerous spacious green fields, New Maryland is an ideal location in which to live.A variety of recreational and leisure programs are available throughout the year for young and old alike. The close proximity makes Fredericton’s diverse cultural facilities, universities and other recreational facilities easily accessible. Being near agricultural and forest lands gives New Maryland a distinctly rural character. The village is committed to maintaining its rural flavour with emphasis on green space and environmental protection. Future goals focus on enhanced water and waste-water treatment, new subdivision parkland, as well as a network of walking trails.
The New Maryland Nature Trails (behind the New Maryland Centre) are a popular destination for walking, snowshoeing, bird watching, rock lovers, and nature enthusiasts. The Athletic Park, located beside the New Maryland Elementary School, is the central sports and field facility for organized and leisure activities in New Maryland. The park is extremely busy from the Spring to Fall with sports, special events and tournaments.
Combining the best of city and rural environments, the New Maryland Centre is an unparalleled venue in the heart of the Village for meetings, seminars, corporate dining and entertainment. The New Maryland Centre boasts a large main hall that can accommodate up to 300 people (standing) and is perfectly suited for your anniversary, retirement, or wedding reception.
