Rosedale is one of the older neighborhoods, dating back to the 1930s and 40s. It is a traditional residential neighborhood, with homes on tree-lined streets, parks, and local businesses and restaurants. A place where people can jog, bike, and walk their dogs along the streets. The amenities, safety, and highly rated schools make this an attractive neighborhood for families.

Many of the homes are modestly-sized and date back to the 1930s to 50s, and reflect the architecture of that period. But the relatively large lot sizes enable new, larger homes to be built. Many of the older homes have been renovated inside but retain their original exterior look and feel.

The neighborhood has several parks, most notably Ramsey Park/Playground which has a swimming pool, a playground, ball field, picnic tables, and BBQ grills, and Shoal Creek, which has running and bike trails.

The neighborhood is just a few minutes' drive from downtown and the University of Texas. It also borders Hwy. 1 and Lamar Blvd., a local thoroughfare, which offer access to other parts of the city. Public transportation by bus and rail is accessible to residents.

The neighborhood has a strong sense of community. The population is a mix of single professionals and young families attracted by the neighborhood's convenient location and amenities, and longtime residents who are now empty-nesters and retirees. The population tends to be older as the neighborhood is popular among retirees.
