Welcome to the Village of Berwyn, the little town with the tower. Berwyn was one of the last communities in Alberta with a wooden water tower. The tower was a local landmark until it was taken down in 1982.
Berwyn is nestled within the Peace River Region of northwestern Alberta. Situated on Highway # 2, the Village of Berwyn is only 37 km. from the Town of Peace River. Berwyn is a quiet community with a population of 526 (2011 census). It is a picturesque community that attracts young and old. Because of the long summer days and good soil, the rural community has been able to maintain a steady population.
Other resource related industries that are important to the region include forestry and the oil and gas industries.
Berwyn has industrial land available for development as well as residential lots for development. If you are looking for a place to raise a family or retire, Berwyn is the place!
