All Hallowed's Eve - 2009

Hey all - here are some pics from last weekend's Halloween extravangaza in Applewood 'hood. Kudos to everyone's inventive costumes; including parents and adults. See you all again next year!

A witch, a Colonel, a Skelly-ton and a Power Ranger spread fear (and chicken) throughout the nabe.

So-Not Johnny Depp, Medieval Knight (Zombie version) and Trojan Man loot and pillage Applewood Acres.

Zombie Knight wants Braiiinnnns. Or candy.

Applewood Acres on Google Streetview

As the winter looms, there's a new (free) way to enjoy the neighbourhood during sunnier times: the Google Streetview cameras rolled through the nabe earlier this year. This view of the park allows for a view of a   young (well, at least one of them) couple relaxing on a picnic table. Can you guess who they are???

This is the blog and official website of the Applewood Acres Community Association. The group was formed in 2009 to better represent the concerns of families who live in the small but vibrant Ottawa neighbourhood. Applewood Acres is located in the city's Alta Vista area, and takes its name from the fact that it is built on what was once an apple orchard for the Billings family whose farm land occupied much of the area before the 1940s.

This blog is intended as an online gathering place for residents and a clearing house for information related to life in the community.
