The weather in Pasadena is hot and humid in the summertime and cool but mild in the winter. Spring thunderstorms and severe weather can extend into the summer and tornadoes may occur in the area. Be aware of daily forecasts before venturing out on your daily walk with your pooch. On very hot days, choose to take your dog for daily walks early in the morning or later in the evening when temperatures moderate somewhat. Make sure you have water along if you are taking an extended walk so you and your pup don't get dehydrated!
There are three large schools and a park to the northwest to enjoy while school properties have sports fields and facilities. Other residential neighborhoods surround Parkwood Estates and the Sam Houston Parkway runs along the eastern side of the community. An undeveloped tract of land separates homes from the busy expressway which protects the community from traffic noise somewhat.
