Chilliwack District
Rosedale is included in the Municipality of Chilliwack although people often consider it a different community being on the far eastern side of Chilliwack. Another nearby small community east of Rosedale on Yale Road is called Popkum which has a number of tourist attractions on Trans-Canada Hwy 1 near Bridal Veil Falls Provincial Park.

Agriculture Industry
Rosedale is a very small community but is made up of lots of small farms and agriculture industry. Throughout this part of the Fraser Valley, the dairy industry and cornfields spread out farther on both sides of the Fraser River, especially Agassiz and the rest of the District of Kent.

Business and Commercial Section
The business and commercial section of Rosedale is mostly situated on Yale Road near the intersection of McGrath Road. Here you can find a number of conveniences including the Village Square, Rosedale Grocery, Rosedale Value Market, Lee's Restaurant, the Post Office and TYCROP.

The largest employer, besides the agriculture industry in Rosedale, is TYCROP a designer and manufacturer of mobile equipment. When driving on the British Columbia highways, you'll have noticed a number of sawdust chip carrying bulk trailers on the road. Many of these trailers have been built by TYCROP at the plant in Rosedale.

Minter Gardens
One of Lower Mainland's biggest garden attractions called Minter Gardens is located at foot of Mount Cheam just north on Yale Road. Operated by Brian Minter and family, this attraction can offer so much inspiration and guidance when designing gardens. If you enjoyed the Butchart Gardens near Victoria in Central Saanich, make sure you plan to see Minter Gardens when visiting Rosedale.

Rosedale Park
