Overview of UEP


  Mark Sumook, Xmas 2006

Above the RAB Ampitheatre in the area formerly known as "Scout City", but renamed the "UEP Eco Park", is a partly drained lake and the remains of a canoe - illustrated on the right.

During the Xmas period in 2006, almost by chance, I took the photo of Mark shown on the left.

I enjoyed talking to Mark, as he had a good sense of humour, and spoke English very well.

So I was sad to learn of his untimely death, along with some companions, at the lake in early 2007.

Scout City has been the venue of national, regional and provincial boy scout jamborees.

The first World Scout Jamboree hosted in Asia was in 1959 at Mount Makiling, Los Banos, Laguna. There were 12,203 Scouts from 44 countries.

Many of the buildings in the Eco Park appear to be associated with the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

The lower half of this page includes photos outside the UEP Eco Park.

Because I required more than one page to illustrate the University, I have included links to the other pages below:

Note: The road stretching between San Isidro to Rawis, Laoang is a legacy from the NSIRDP Project which was funded by Australia in the late 70s. They left their houses at the UEP Eco Park about 1986.
