The settlement of Rosedale developed mainly thanks to the creation of the Yale to New Westminster Wagon Road in 1874. The corner of Yale and McGrath Roads was home to the first school opened in 1890 and since then has been the commercial centre of Rosedale. During a 30 year boom, the town’s economy underwent a transformation from sawmills to farming. Today, many of the heritage buildings built at the turn of the last century can still be seen. Rosedale is home to BC’s largest Beekeeping farm as well as spectacular Minter Gardens.
On the south side of the highway at the foot of mighty Mount Cheam is the community of Bridal Falls. Home to Bridal Falls Provincial Park, located at the site of the ancient village of Popkum, the waterfalls with their veil-like effect, draw thousands of visitors each year due to their sheer beauty and close proximity to the highway.
Also home to a waterpark, golf course and several camping and RV parks, the area is a popular base for holidaymakers exploring the Fraser Valley.
