Town of Hampton

is located 35 km northeast of Saint John, and is a small, friendly community with many points of interest and beautiful natural scenery. We are nestled on the Kennebecasis River, a tributary of the St. John River. The town’s rolling hills, waterways, farmland, wildlife and world-renowned marsh area reward visitors with a visual feast.

It's our nature!


Council is pleased to announce that the former Kings County Court House will be repurposed into a new municipal services building. Council recognizes the importance of this significant historical building and repurposing it into the Hampton Municipal Offices will ensure that it is a space that works well for today and into the future. The Town will be working with the existing property tenants throughout the project. Renovations are expected to be completed in 2016. The renovations will be completed thanks in part to Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program funding announced by the Honourable Rob Moore, Regional Minister for New Brunswick, Minister of State (Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency) and Member of Parliament for Fundy Royal. The Government of Canada has approved a contribution of $267,045 to update the building and improve accessibility.
