Location of Rosedale in British Columbia

Rosedale is a farming-based community located in Chilliwack, British Columbia. This small community is based alongside the Fraser River. It serves as a base for many tourists, both in summer and winter. The hills and valleys of British Columbia are popular skiing, snowboarding and dogsledding locations. In summer, rockclimbing and whitewater rafting are the primary activities in the Fraser Valley.

Despite the popular belief, Minter Gardens is not actually located in Rosedale, but is a part of Popkum, British Columbia.

Starting in the 2007 school year, the middle school located in Rosedale, Rosedale Middle School, transformed into the Chilliwack School District's first traditional school. Rosedale now boasts a brand new elementary/middle school combined, which opened its doors in 2012.
