A brief slice of our history

For a time in the 1970s, the land that is now the Amberwood Village Golf and Recreation Club  was marshland and beaver ponds. The area had once been a working farm, but beavers had built dams on Poole Creek, raising the water in some portions to four feet. Meanwhile, developer Jack Johannsen had a long-term vision to build a resort-style, adult community in the Ottawa area. In the mid-1960s, he had signed a 10-year agreement to purchase the farmland, but he postponed his plan until a sewer system was in place in Stittsville. Back then, Stittsville had a population of 3,000—less than a tenth of what it is today. There were no big box stores or restaurants or large shopping malls. To entice buyers to Amberwood Village, the developer created a very special drawing card—a challenging nine-hole golf course complemented by a pool, tennis courts and a posh clubhouse with racquetball courts and other amenities. And he assured buyers that they would collectively own everything. In 1986, the 50-acre property and its amenities were turned over to the not-for-profit Amberwood Village Recreation Association (AVRA) for the sum of $1. Today, the property is still owned by AVRA homeowner members and the once private club is now open to the public.
