Part of a series about Places in Nova Scotia

Greenwood (2001 pop. 4,500) is a village located in the western part of Kings County in Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley.

Surrounded by agricultural lands, Greenwood was a small hamlet south of the Dominion Atlantic Railway's Kingston Station. 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. The Royal Canadian Air Force took over the facility in 1944, renaming it RCAF Station Greenwood, a name it maintained until the February 1, 1968 unification of the Canadian Forces which saw the airfield and associated facilities renamed CFB Greenwood.

During the 1970s-2000s, the village of Greenwood has expanded in population as numerous other air force bases in eastern Canada have been closed and their aircraft and personnel consolidated at CFB Greenwood.

Today, the village and base's combined population number approximately 4,500. The village hosts numerous services and is also the location of the Greenwood Mall, the second largest shopping centre in western Annapolis Valley.
