Home to the communities of Warwick and Watford, the Township of Warwick has a population of about 3,700 (2011).
As early as the 1830s, settlers moved to what would become the Village of Warwick. Later, the Village of Watford was established in the 1850s to the south of Warwick, close to the location of the Great Western Railway which passed through the area.
Many local festivals and events continue to attract visitors to Warwick. Reasonably priced real estate is helping to drive an active arts and culture scene. Many opportunities for outdoor activities exist, including a 73 hectare (180 acre) conservation area with 181 serviced campsites.
Local Council has adopted a Community and Economic Development strategy that places emphasis on welcoming both potential new businesses and new residents.
Warwick offers a small-town living experience with light traffic and low cost of living.
