Welcome to Rosedale Park; One of the luxuries the westside of Detroit has to offer. This elegant neighborhood is known for its sparse suburban feel and classy, built-to-last residential homes. The Rosedale Park district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006 and has the largest number of individual properties of any district nominated, with a whopping number of 1,533. Primarily containing brick houses, this district was largely developed from the late 1920s through the 1940s. This land covers 340 acres.
One of Detroits Most Stunning Historic Districts: Rosedale Park
Most of these residents own their homes (80%). They have resided here for a long period of time and are surrounded by several parks which make for great outdoor family activity. A typical spring or summer day will display children outside playing in their yards and at parks, residents walking their dogs and many people up keeping their gorgeous gardens and lawns. The traffic islands placed in the center of many north/south street blocks serve much purpose to the atmosphere in this conservative residential neighborhood: they require the driver to curve around them, are filled with flowers and large trees, serve to slow traffic, buffer noise, and provide a pleasing focal point of visual interest. Over the years, they have been a source of pride for residents, who have organized themselves into block groups to share in their upkeep and beautification.
There is a plaza nearby that features a local grocery store, several fast food options, small businesses that provide goods and services, a large daycare center, restaurants that offer healthier food selections such as "Detroit Vegan Soul", banks and much more. Residents also love how they have convenient nearby access to Southfield Freeway and I-96. Downtown Detroit is only 17 minutes away.
