About Our Neighborhood 

The Rose Hill area was annexed into the city in 1916. Washington Park, located in the western portion, is a very important place within this neighborhood. It features a community center and swimming pool as well as play equipment and recreational ball fields.

The majority of the neighborhood is single-family residential with small to medium size homes. The second greatest land use in the area is Educational property. Burley Middle School, on Rose Hill Drive, serves Albemarle County. Rose Hill’s was designated as a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) target neighborhood.

Rose Hill Drive serves as the main throughway for the neighborhood, containing parking and bike lanes. The neighborhood has a grid of residential streets and alleys, used primarily by residents and local business owners. Residents of the neighborhood are within walking distance of the commercial areas located on Preston Avenue and the Downtown Mall, but this proximity does not detract from the quaint neighborhood atmosphere.
