Rockland is a pretty rocky place to be, with a hilly landscape and gravel terrain throughout the town. The rough surrounding areas didn't stop the town from pawspering though, and is has become a suburb of Boston, which is only 22 miles away. The town doesn't have an animal hospital, but there are two just 2 miles east in Abington. Whether providing for guests or residents, the town also shows how welcoming it can be to its four-legged companions, with parks, trails, and other outdoor attractions waiting to be explored!

The Rockland Town Forest and Conservation Land is the best places to head with Fido. With over 43 acres of protected land and wildlife, the park provides gorgeous trails with natural areas, wooden boardwalks, picnic shelters, trash bins, and a small parking lot. Don't forget to keep your pup on a leash 6 feet or shorter while visiting.

The city also offers the Hanover Branch Rail Trail for a puptastic adventure, an old trail made from a logging railroad track that extends over 2.6 miles. Surfaced with crushed stone and asphalt, the trail starts on Birch Street, with nearby parking, and extends east throughout the city. There are trash bins, benches, and a water fountain in the parking area, and Fido has to remain on a leash.

Despite being a small town, Rockland is expanding every day and making new ways to show just how much they care for their four legged besties!

    Hatherly is a small neighborhood in the northeast part of town, with plenty of preserved natural areas and a few residential homes.

This huge area spreads over 200 acres along the Rockland Abington Reservoir, with dirt and boardwalk trails that span through the land and along the lake, open areas, and fishing access points. Although the park has plenty of natural wonders and untouched area, dogs will have to remain on a leash, with water and clean-up bags being brought by the walker.
