Rossdale, a popular residential neighbourhood just south of downtown Edmonton, features the leafy charm of an urban parkland coupled with the convenience of life near the center of a dynamic city.

The community is not only one of Edmonton’s most conveniently located areas, it is possibly its oldest and most historic. Before giving rise to the now-defunct Rossdale Power Plant, the site had been home to a First Nations encampment and the Hudson Bay Company’s Fort Edmonton. Rossdale also held Diamond Park, home of the Edmonton Eskimos baseball team, and presently contains Telus Field, current home of the Edmonton Capitals baseball team.

The neighbourhood has seen extensive redevelopment in the last two decades, with over half of all presently-standing units post-dating 1990. Today, all types of housing are represented in Rossdale. Almost half of the housing consists of apartments in both high-rise and low-rise styles; the rest is composed of a mixture of detached single-family houses, row homes and duplexes. The population is extremely mobile, and households tend to be smaller than average. Almost half of all Rossdale households consist of a single resident. The average home price in Rossdale is $570,000 and the average household income is $63,000. 

Residents of Rossdale enjoy many conveniences and amenities, with easy access to the University of Alberta, downtown Edmonton attractions, and the River Valley recreational area. Nearby on River Valley road lie three different golf courses.

The neighbourhood is bounded on the north by Jasper Avenue, on the south and east by the North Saskatchewan River, and on the west by 106th Street. The area was named for Donald Ross, a notable early Edmonton hotelier.
