To Pasadena

Kruse & Gardens

44% of children attending Kruse Elementary School and 58% of children attending Gardens Elementary School are at a high risk for obesity. HLM continues working closely with Pasadena to understand how neighborhood design and access to healthy food may be related to childhood obesity.

HLM looked at a number of things, such as:

Kashmere Gardens

  • Neighborhood design - such as sidewalks, trails, street lighting, and parks and other places that can encourage residents to walk, bike, and live more active lifestyles


  • Access to healthy food - such as the presence of grocery stores in the neighborhood, and the availability of fresh produce
