The late season blooms are so beautiful. Shelburne Falls is a nice little walking town, cute shops and good ice cream.

Have been here twice in June, and the bridge with it's perennial plantings is just stunning. Would love to see it in another month. If you are in the area during the growing season, worth a stop, quite magical.

Just charming and beautifully done over many years. The love that has gone into this linear garden shows at every step.

This bridge was everything I expected it to be. A beautiful walk over the river on a somewhat narrow path surrounded by a bountiful display of flowers. The late summer display was gorgeous with zinnias, dahlias, sunflowers, hibiscus and many more flowers.

It's free, and the stroll doesn't take long. Nice views of the river and beautiful flowers make for some great photo ops.

The flowers and shrubbery on the old bridge (formerly a tram bridge) are always worth seeing. Adequate free parking and a huge success regarding accessibility for wheelchairs. Recommend going across the car bridge and park there. Shops etc. on the other side, but there is...More

No! It is free, and it is also very short.
