Village of Hillsborough

Our quaint Village welcomes you to explore, eat, sleep, play & relax!


The Village of Hillsborough is located in southeastern New Brunswick, on the banks of the Petitcodiac River, approximately 30 kilometers south of the city of Moncton, close to Hopewell Rocks and Fundy National Park. We are situated on Route 114, which is a major tourist route to the Hopewell Rocks Park, Fundy National Park and the Fundy Scenic Drive.  We are proud to promote ourselves as the “Eastern Gateway to the Fundy Tidal Zone”.

Taking pride in our rural character, Hillsborough is a prime destination for the outdoor enthusiast.  Our marshes and wetlands offer excellent bird watching opportunities.  Trail systems throughout the wetlands and abandoned quarry properties provide residents and visitors a natural setting for a leisurely walk.  The young at heart can enjoy the challenge of a fast-paced mountain bike tour through diverse and picturesque trails.

Our Village is full of eastern hospitality and community pride. Hundreds of volunteers from the community make it possible to provide fire service, minor hockey and figure skating programs, annual festivals and celebrations and many other services that make the Village of Hillsborough one of the best communities to live in. Service clubs continue to volunteer their time to upgrade municipal facilities so that our residents have all the opportunities of the large urban areas.

There is much to do and see in Hillsborough—be sure to make this a long stop along your journey.

Emergency Water Conservation

Due to the lack of rain, the Village’s water supply is extremely low.
To ensure the integrity of our water supply – it is imperative that water usage be kept to a minimum.
We ask that residents DO NOT:
Water lawns, fill pools, wash vehicles, or use water needlessly…
Please fix any water leaks immediately. We require the cooperation of ALL residents. This conservation notice will be in place long-term as it will take significant rainfall amounts to bring the system back to where it should be. It is always important to conserve; Please use your water wisely!
