Kingston Greenwood, Kings County


Greenwood is a small, hamlet in Annapolis Valley. It is home to Canadian Forces Base Greenwood, a Canadian Air Force base. In 1942, the Royal Air Force established RAF Station Greenwood and built an aerodrome on nearby farmland to provide a facility for training aircrew under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. In July 1997 the air base became one of eleven operational wings in Canada, and was designated as 14 Wing Greenwood.

Much of the housing in the heart of Greenwood is for the military families stationed at the base, and are referred to as PMQs. Most of the non-military housing for the village is located on the outskirts.

Today, the village and base’s combined population numbers approximately 5,400. The village hosts numerous services and is also the location of the Greenwood Mall, the largest shopping mall in the Annapolis Valley.

Kingston remains as a major service centre for the apple growing industry in the area of western Kings County and has a growing retail district, owing to its access to Highway 101.

The villages of Kingston and Greenwood are sometimes called Kingston-Greenwood because of their proximity have become almost synonymous, as they share the same highway exit and local telephone exchange.

On the second Saturday in July, the village hosts its annual Steer BBQ, involving a parade and a small fair, where an entire steer is roasted. This has been a tradition in the community for over 50 years.
