Living in Pasadena

New opportunities and strong family values. You can have them both in Pasadena.

Pasadena, Texas is a flourishing community. With a population of 155,000, we are large enough to have all the amenities a family could want including quality healthcare, entertainment, and shopping. Simultaneously, we have a deep affinity for our agricultural roots and have maintained the personal connections with each other that can typically only be found in a small town. With the world getting busier, people being less connected, and everyone on the go, Pasadena is still the type of place where people can get to know their neighbors. This focus on community and family values has led many people who work in the metro Houston area to call Pasadena “home”.

Moving. Forward. Together

Pasadena residents and businesses are constantly pushing the community forward in education and economic prosperity. This is clearly on display in the new Dr. Kirk Lewis Career & Technical High School, a state-of-the-art facility preparing Pasadena’s students for careers as diverse as robotics, maritime employment, finance, criminal justice and other in-demand jobs. It’s alive and well in the city’s Volunteer Pasadena services, drawing from a pool of civic-minded participants larger than many cities several times our size. And Pasadena’s respected Fire Department has long held the distinction of being the largest single-community volunteer fire department in the US.

Pasadena has taken its great natural advantages of geography, strong population growth and drive to succeed economically and carved out a place where time-honored principles of hard work and family values are still practiced.
