Rosedale is one of the wealthiest neighbourhoods in Toronto, Canada. Based on home pricing, it is considered amongst the most desirable neighbourhoods in Canada. It is known as the area where the city's 'Old Money' lives, and is home to some of Canada's richest and most famous citizens, such as David Thomson, Gordon Lightfoot. Rosedale is unique in that it is surrounded by beautiful ravines and parkland that make you feel as if you are far away from the city, while in reality Rosedale is just a few minutes from Toronto's major business, entertainment, and shopping districts. Rosedale has convoluted routes through the neighbourhood and other physical boundaries, and thus it has low levels of vehicular traffic. South Rosedale was first settled by Sheriff William Jarvis and his wife, Mary, in the 1820s. Mary Jarvis, whose frequent walks and horseback rides blazed the trails for Rosedale's meandering streets (which are one of the area's trademarks), named Rosedale as a tribute to the abundance of wild roses that graced the hillsides of the Jarvis estate. The Jarvis Family sold the Rosedale homestead in 1864, which led to the residential development of the area soon after. Although Rosedale has held the distinction of being Toronto's wealthiest neighbourhood for over 100 years, its status has, in recent years, been challenged by the Bridle Path, and Forest Hill(pics).
