Rossdale, formerly known as Ross Flats, is one of Edmonton's oldest neighbourhoods.
It has a long history of First Nations use, with two fur trade forts established near the current Rossdale Generating Station in 1802. Donald Ross bought a lot of land in the region in 1876 and built a house at the foot of McDougall Hill that became Edmonton's first hotel.

Ross Flats served as a supply station for the Klondike Gold Rush and was home to a brewery, an ice house, a lumber yard, a power plant, and a coal mine. On the Ross Flats, a lot of Edmonton's early cultural activities took place. For many years, Diamond Park was the home of Edmonton sporting events such as baseball, soccer, and football. The showgrounds were originally hosted in Rossdale before being relocated to their current location in 1911.

Edmonton was hit by a major flood in 1915. Rossdale's homes and businesses were devastated, and many businesses could not reopen. Rossdale has steadily changed since the disaster. Many commercial and industrial assets have been converted to new uses, and some of the older structures have been demolished, leaving many empty. The majority of the property area in Rossdale is now dedicated to leisure and open space.

Many of the homes, most of which are single-detached, are between the ages of 50 and 75. Rossdale is beginning the process of revitalization and redevelopment, aided by the City's commitment to the river valley communities.

Rossdale is named after Donald Ross, an Edmonton businessman who built the city's first hotel in the Rossdale neighbourhood. In 1872, Donald Ross arrived in Edmonton and erected a house in Rossdale. He began renting out the second floor of the property soon after, establishing Edmonton's first hotel.

Ross extended the house three times over the years, and following his death in 1915, it was converted into a rooming house. In 1925, the structure was destroyed by fire.
