San Ramon, Zamboanga City, Philippines
San Ramon is part of barangay Talisayan and became an integral part of it because of the penal farm. The prison personnel established their residence outside the walls of this prison. Four generations later San Ramon became an established community with its own school system.
About 100 meters in front of the main prison gate lies a beautiful beach. This is not an open beach but with the right permission the public is granted passage. There is no cover charge. Everyone can enjoy the beautiful San Ramon Beach.

History of San Ramon, Zamboanga City
San Ramon was first a Penal Colony.
- Here is an article from one of our contributors Felino Santos - July 21, 2006
This 136 year old institution, still functioning today dating back to the late Spanish regime will soon be a thing of the past. Its misfortune, if we can call it that way , is that it stands in the way of an ambitious project of government - to invite investors to Zamboanga
The country’s second oldest penitentiary - the San Ramon Prison and Penal Farm – established in August 21, 1869 to house recalcitrant political prisoners and Moro rebels will be destroyed. It is not overcrowded or pose a threat to the community.
But - the Zamboanga City Special Economic Zone and Free Port plans to establish a seaport in the site – to bring about development to Southern Philippines. It is not even said who will use that seaport. But projects are projects for as long as there is money to spend. This still being imagined Sea Port is expected to be funded on a Build-Operate-Transfer Scheme. The financiers of this Sea Port are still to be found, but the Ecozone has already set aside some P300 million to relocate the facility to a 1,25 hectare site at Camp Pilar somewhere in the hills between Curuan, Quiniput and Bunguaio.
Construction of the facilities in the relocated penitentiary site is expected to begin August and will be ready for occupancy early next year. The Ecozone has already bidded out the construction of a dormitory, administration building and housing complex –without any consultation for specifications with San Ramon officials who are expected to occupy the place.
How can this happen in Zamboanga that prides on its Spanish and American heritage?
How can an insensitive populace or bureaucracy allow this “desecration” of a historical site. To make matters worse, the National Historical Commission has failed to declare the San Ramon Prison and Penal Farm as a historical site that should be preserved , untampered for the future generation.
An official of the San Ramon said they submitted all the documents to the National Historical Commission to declare the facility and institution as a historical site in 2001. Nobody bothered to follow the proposal to this day. So the facility is open to destruction and to be obliterated from the face of the earth.
The city council, led by Councilor Juan Kim Elago conducted a consultation hearing of the project at its P55 million building in this city last July 20 and gave the go signal to the Ecozone to proceed with the project.
HOW DID THIS COME ABOUT?
The Zamboanga Ecozone, whose top officials are Zamboangueños were the ones who initiated for the transfer of the penitentiary from San Ramon to the hills of Curuan. None of them probably thought of the historical significance of the institution to the people of Zamboanga. As a result the Department of Justice turned over the site to the Ecozone. The Ecozone will shoulder the cost of the transfer but in turn they get this choice property of earth for their use.

Natural Resources of San Ramon, Zamboanga City
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
