The Rural Municipality of Union Road lies directly to the north of the City of Charlottetown in Queen's County.  The Union Road bisects the community from north to south and gives the community its name.  One of the most striking aspects of the community's location is the close proximity of the Charlottetown Airport which is located just to the south of the community's southern boundary.  The Rural Municipality of Union Road was incorporated as a local government in 1977.

History

Towards the end of the 18th century, settlers from England and Scotland came to the area just north of the Charlottetown Royalties on the lands adjacent to the Union Road, including parts of Lots 33 and 34.  The 1880 Mecham's Atlas depicts a thriving farming community with only a few prominent landmarks, including the Union Road train station (at the intersection of the rail line with the Union Road), a post office just to the north of the train station and a small church, the Union Road Bible Chapel located next to the Union Road Community Cemetery.

There are currently no signs of the former train station and the rail line has been abandoned for some time and is now part of the Confederation Trail.  The post office is also  long gone and the Union Road Church was demolished in 1973.  The only remaining features reflecting Union Road's past are the Union Road Community Cemetery, which was located next to the former church, and a number of older farm dwellings.
