Rhosddu is a community in the Wrexham County Borough of Wales. It consists of the north-eastern part of the market town of Wrexham.

It neighbours other communities in the town such as Garden Village, Acton and Stansty.

The new parish of Rhosddu was formed by an Order in Council in 1886, containing the townships of Acton, Bieston and Gourton (from the parish of Wrexham), the township of Borras Riffri (from the parish of Gresford), and the township of Stansty (from the parish of Gwersyllt). In 1888, small parts of the townships of Broughton and Gwersyllt, from the parish of Gwersyllt, were added to it. In 1972, Rhosddu reverted to the parish of Wrexham.

Church History; Ordnance Survey reference SJ 332511. The foundation stone of the new church, which is dedicated to St. James, was laid on 30 September 1874. It was opened for worship in January 1876, although it was not consecrated until 27 April 1886.

Wrexham AFC played their home games in the 1881-82 and 1882-83 seasons at Rhosddu Recreation Ground (changing the club's name to Wrexham Athletic for one season), before moving back to the Racecourse Ground for the 1883-84 season, where they have remained ever since.
