Why we love Rockville Centre…
The architectural home styles range from traditional historic Colonials, Tudors and Victorians to mid-century modern designs and new construction homes which have recently become highly sought after. Rockville Centre is one of the few Villages on Long Island to offer Village services including a 54-member police force, electric and water utilities.
The Village offers a plethora of outdoor and indoor entertainment. In the heart of the village is the Village Green, a beautiful park that provides a location for special events, and additional parks that offer sports fields, playgrounds, fishing, ice skating, and The Rockville Links Club that offers an 18-hole golf course. The most popular indoor entertainment spaces are Maple Lanes Bowling Alley, the AMC Fantasy Movie Theater, the Sandel Senior Center, and the Rockville Centre Recreation Center which has some 300 programs, classes and activities.
The Rockville Centre Union Free School District is an exemplary award-winning school district with 5 elementary schools from kindergarten through 5th grade. Grades 6th through 8th attend South Side Middle School. Grades 9th through 12th attend South Side High School. There is also the private St. Agnes Cathedral School for pre-K through 8th grade and Molloy College, a private college offering a value-centered, multidimensional liberal arts education with more than 50 academic undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
