Alfred "Arf" Walker is a character in the Eden Pond Series.


Arf Walker served as an Air Raid Warden at the same post as Harry Pond.

People who didn't know him well thought him a heavy drinker, not unfairly as whiskey had been a factor in the fishing accident that cost him two ribs. When he recovered, he was no long able to fish. He survived doing odd jobs and accepting tips from drunks he drove home from the Smokehouse Tavern at the end of each night. He spent a great deal of time at the Smokehouse, sitting at the bar drinking coffee and staring at the half-empty bottle of whiskey he'd been drinking the day of his accident. The level of the whiskey has been unchanged ever since, though the casual observer couldn't be faulted for assuming he still drank.

Fred Turley was one of the men he drove home.
