Chapel Grove is a Canadian rural community in Kings County, New Brunswick.

It is adjacent to Summerville and lies south of Clifton Royal on the Kingston Peninsula on the northwest bank of the Kennebecasis River opposite the towns of Quispamsis and Rothesay. The community is served by New Brunswick Route 845. The community is framed by steep hills directly west of Long Island.

Among Chapel Grove's earliest European settlers were United Empire Loyalists who were granted farmsteads in the area for their loyalty to the British cause. Most of these farms are now overgrown by dense forest. The community derives its name from St Bridget’s Church, which serves the spiritual life of the traditionally Catholic community.
