Rosedale

Rosedale is a farming-based community just outside of Chilliwack. Based along the Fraser River this neighbourhood serves as a base for many tourists in both Summer, and Winter. During Winter, the hills and valleys of the surrounding area are popular for skiing, snowboarding, and even dog-sledding. In Summer, rock climbing and whitewater rafting are the primary activities that the area has to offer. The Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park is a great place for nature walks, and offers numerous trails for outdoors enthusiasts. Fishing is available in the surrounding rivers and lakes.

This community is within driving distance of the Minter Gardens, which has been in operation for over 30 years. A 32-acre world-class garden show that changes with the seasons. If you are in the mood for something sweeter, the Honeyview farm is just north of Rosedale. This bee farm has been in operation for over 35 years, and offers a guided tour to learn all there is to know about these honey-making creatures; and of course, eat some honey.

Location

Rosedale is located approximately 20 km (12 mi) east of Chilliwack off the Trans Canada Highway 1. Take Exit 135 eastbound or Exit 138 westbound and head north on Hwy 9. Turn left onto Yale Road East.

A Step Back in Time

The completion of the Yale to New Westminster Wagon Road in 1874 led directly to the settlement of Rosedale. By 1890, there were enough families in the area to warrant building a school which has since become the centre of Rosedale.
The area’s population boomed beginning in the 1890s. This boom lasted for more than thirty years, fuelled by the logging, railway and farming industries. It was a transition period that saw farms replace sawmills. Many of the heritage buildings can still be found in and around Rosedale today.
