Rosedale Popkum, Chilliwack

July 12, 2011

Rosedale is a quaint community of small farms relatively remote from the main thoroughfares of the Fraser Valley, nestled in the shadow of mountains.

Its seclusion makes Rosedale ideal for retirees, or those seeking a getaway, or just a nice place to raise a family. The natural environment provides plenty of recreational opportunities, whether on the Fraser River or in the surrounding forests. Horse riding is popular, as is cycling, boating and fishing.
