EAGLE SCOUT PROJECTS


2018 Trail Markers and Trail Map

In the fall of 2018, Alex Chung, another scout from Troop 430, contributed to Scott Park by leading a team of scouts to create a trail map for the park, a sign with the map on it at the park entrance, and color coded trail markers that were placed along the trails corresponding to the maps. This project is a great addition to the park in giving people some understanding of where the trails lead as well as making it easier for the Township to locate trees that may have fallen across a particular path.



2018 Picnic Tables

In 2018 Jacob Chung from Boy Scout Troop 430 began his Eagle Scout Project by cleaning up an area at the beginning of the trail leading to Ridley Creek to create a picnic area. Once he cleaned the area, he and a team of scouts built 2 picnic tables for adults and one for children. After building the picnic tables, Jacob enhanced the area with additional plantings.


2014 Bench Installation

In September, 2014, Max Miller was given final approval for his project and three benches we re-installed in Scott Park. Next time you are walking on the trails in the park, you will be able to sit and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings.  UPOS paid for two of the benches and the third was paid for by Mrs Scott in memory of her husband.



2011 Tree Supports & Fencing

In October, 2011, UPOS worked with Scout Geoffrey Gaskins of Rose Valley, Troop 272. Geoffrey led the project to establish fencing around the trees/shrubs that had been planted in the park to protect them from deer. UPOS helped by paying for the material from Home Depot. The scouts spent 2 afternoons at the park, clearing the weeds under the trees, installing weed mats around the base of the trees and shrubs, and covering them with mulch, before putting up the stakes and fencing.



2010 Information Boards

In May, 2010, UPOS worked with Scout Andrew Peng of Upper Providence, Troop 430. Scott led the project team in building 2 information boards at both entrances to the park. UPOS helped by paying for the material needed from Tague Lumber.



      2009 Boardwalk Project

In June, 2009, UPOS worked with Scout Darrel Decorso of Upper Providence, Troop 430. Led by Darrel, the project team built a boardwalk along the lower trail so that storm water would run beneath the path. UPOS helped by paying for the needed material from Tague Lumber and the scouts, along with several UPOS volunteers, worked an entire day to build the boardwalk.
