Groveland, MA Town Information

Groveland is a town in Essex County, Massachusetts, United States. At the 2010 census, it had a population of 6,459.[1] The town is divided into two precincts, Groveland and South Groveland.


Groveland's downtown is framed by the gazebo in Elm Park. Elm Park is a recent addition to Groveland. In the early part of the last century, elm trees were dominant in the landscape. Then, about 1950, many of the trees died of Dutch elm disease. It is only recently that resistant varieties of elms have been developed. With this development, the townspeople built a new park, planted with the new resistant variety. Since Groveland is primarily a bedroom community, there is considerable traffic during the commute drive time. However, once the rush is over, the town reverts to a sleepy village, with children and some grownups riding their bicycles about and walking.


As of the census[13] of 2010, there were 6,459 people, 2,346 households, and 1,812 families residing in the town. The population density was 724.8 people per square mile (279.9/kmē). There were 2,346 housing units at an average density of 263.3 per square mile (101.6/kmē).
