Situated between the Magothy River and Chesapeake Bay, Pasadena is a quiet, friendly haven where most of the leisure activities are related to water sports. The selection of homes in Pasadena can be elegant or modest and include both single-family houses and semi-detached residences. Even some of the waterfront properties are reasonably priced, offering private docks and boat slips for fishing, swimming and boating. Other recreational facilities available in the community include the racing excitement of the busy Downs Park, roller skating rinks, sports fields and riding stables. Newcomers will appreciate the convenient shopping at charming country stores or nearby regional malls. North Arundel Hospital is the closest medical facility should the need for advanced care arise.
