Welcome to North Grenville
On behalf of Council and all staff at the Municipality, I would like to take this opportunity to extend a warm welcome to North Grenville.
A brilliant blend of urban and rural, the Municipality of North Grenville is comprised of the Town of Kemptville and six rural Hamlets, including Oxford Mills, Oxford Station, Bishop's Mills, Burritt's Rapids, Heckston and Peltons Corners. Throughout the Municipality, you will find an abundance of activities and events that are sure to engage residents of all ages and interests.
Over the last few years, the Municipality has worked hard to expand our extensive trail system, which now includes our signature Rail Trail which extends from Bedell Road, through Old Town Kemptville all the way to the commercial Colonnade development. And don't forget to check our Waterfront Trail at Curry Park.
There is also an extensive trail network in Ferguson Forest, which is comprised of 800 acres of Crown Land. Limerick Forest, located on the southern boundary of North Grenville, is another wonderful natural asset of 782 hectares of community forest, owned and managed by the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville. In fact, in 2008 it became certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®).
And we can't forget to mention beautiful Kemptville Campus. A municipally owned asset, the Campus is comprised of 17 main buildings on 630 acres, which includes woodlands, cropland, wetland, greenspace, green houses, an agroforestry centre and maple bush, and of course, trails.
I encourage you to sign up for our weekly e-newsletter that features a full roster of activities from our event calendar.
You will also receive my weekly Mayor's e-newsletter on the latest happenings in and outside of town. And be sure to follow us on Twitter (@North_Grenville), Facebook (@MunicipalityOfNorthGrenville) and Instagram (@NorthGrenville).
As you find your way in North Grenville, reach out anytime, and welcome home!
Mayor Nancy Peckford
