Rockville is a small unincorporated community in northern-central Solano County, California southwest of Fairfield and closest to Cordelia.[2]

The main economic activities are farming, tourism, and the large regional Rockville Cemetery.[3]

Rockville was the site of a crop circle controversy in 2003, with some initially claiming an extraterrestrial cause. However, some local teenagers later admitted that they had perpetrated the hoax.[4]

Tourism[edit]

Rockville is the home of the Rockville Hills Regional Park,[5] consisting of 633 acres of grasslands and oak woodlands, with a dense mixed broadleaf forest through which there are many hiking and biking trails.
