Deciding whether a town would be good town to live in is very hard for another person to tell someone it is all a matter of opinion. I personally have lived in the town for all of my 47 years and I have found it to be a very good town to me and my family. This link will give you all the information on the town’s population http://www.city-data.com/city/Rockland-Massachusetts.html. Hope this will help you and if you have any further question please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

Be careful. If you are looking for quality of schools - which does effect home value - the state says Rockland ranks near the bottom. This is especially true of the high school and middle school - both of which fared poorly in the MCAS. If you are looking for friendly people - Rockland has plenty of them. If you are looking for a good library - look elsewhere. The library is in decay and it isn't open on weekends or most nights. Downtown Rockland is mostly a ghost town. And Rockland has absolutely no supermarkets - although there are plenty in the towns around it. Rockland also hasn't invested much in conservation land - instead allowing developers to pretty much do whatever they want.

I can appreciate your answer but feel that Rockland is a great place to live. I have lived here for 17 years and am impressed with all of the positive changes.
