A Visit to Lehigh Valley’s Saylor Park 


A Visit to Lehigh Valley’s Saylor Park 


Here at Plant Smart Living we love sharing natural experiences with you. A member of our team went on a leisurely walk into a piece of industrial history found in Northampton, Pennsylvania. Without a doubt, there was some hesitation before arriving as to whether or not this trip would be worth it, as the photos and testimonials we were able to find online did not necessarily give us the impression this would be a large area to explore or overly worthwhile, but we took the plunge anyways. Upon arriving, we discovered that this walking path was well maintained and featured a playground for the kids. The old remnants of the industrial boom in PA, the cement kilns, were on full display to the public. They are truly breathtaking and visible from the parking area. The sheer scale of the kilns was impressive. While I love nature, seeing these ruins is quite unique, especially given how we place some emphasis on DIY/construction here at PSL as well.
