Have a changelog
The list of past changes can be accessed through the roadmap, but having a default changelog URL (even if it is not in the primary links) that shows only completed versions (with pagination) would seem more intuitive. A roadmap is more commonly used to look into the future only.

From a personal POV, I can't see any value added to have a specific changelog page since the roadmap seems pretty easy to read?
It would really be more a convenience. Users new to Redmine searching for a changelog will probably not look into the roadmap.
Also, it is not possible to display only the closed versions on the roadmap, which seems logical for a roadmap, but a changelog usually starts with the latest release, not the versions that are in development.
Moreover, when selecting the “Show completed versions” in the roadmap, it shows all versions on one page, which takes time to load and results in a very long page.
I’m thinking about something like the manually created Changelog. If it exists and is updated, it means it has its uses, don’t you think? ;)
