Rosedale Valley Bridge or Rosedale Valley Road Bridge is a covered concrete Arch bridge that carries subway trains across the Rosedale Ravine.

The bridge begins just west of Castle Frank subway station and runs almost parallel with the Rosedale section of the Prince Edward Viaduct.

The bridge can be seen from the north side of Bloor Street or from below at Rosedale Valley Road.

The bridge was built in 1966 by architect John B. Parkin.

Besides Rosedale Valley Bridge and Prince Edward Viaduct, there are three other bridges that spans above Rosedale Valley Road:
