Bridge of Flowers is a unique experience - just a simple walk across a river, but no ordinary flower boxes. Has to be seen to be understood. Combine this with stopovers to see local crafts, go antiquing en route, observe the Falls and be amazed at the giant rocks that were carved out and made smooth, like really giant marbles... More

This unique old railroad bridge has been transformed into a flower garden. From May to October there will always be something in bloom. Plants and flowers are labelled, which is helpful and settles many arguments! Free of charge, but you can donate a few dollars at one end of the bridge...I suggest that you do as this wonderful attraction is... More

Kudos to the volunteers that maintain this lovely bridge. In fact the whole town of Shelburne Falls is simply lovely to walk through, and shop, and eat. I visited on a day that there were quite a lot of people (noticed at least one bus tour) milling about the streets, but the bridge never felt crowded. Lots of horticulturalists about... More

The Bridge of Flowers is maintained by volunteers in Shelbourne Falls, Massachusetts and is a very special experience Spring, Summer and Fall. Flowers of all colors and shapes, some perennial bushes and trees (a pine tree with pink flowers for example at the Shelbourne end of the Bridge) - it is a delightful walk across the river, enjoying the breezes...

We visited at the tail end of the summer when the plants were probably past their best, but on the other hand we were able to amble along, stopping to admire and take photos without getting in anyone's way or having our own enjoyment marred by crowds. It is very beautiful, and unexpected. I suppose I had been expecting plants... More

Spring to Fall this is the place to be. The Bridge of Flowers is a converted trolley bridge that has been lovingly transformed into a lush garden that is definitely worth the stroll through to check out all for the interesting plants and gorgeous flowers. Bring a camera because you'll be snapping a ton of photos of the beautiful buds,... More

We enjoyed our walk across the bridge. I am sure that when flowers are in bloom this is extraordinary.

Visited the location on a Sunday and there were many folks outside on this bridge. The bridge and views were quite nice, but oddly, many of the shops were closed and the town was a bit dead. I imagine it would be best to visit this bridge in the spring, but it was worth the quick stop.

The bridge is a lovely place to spend some time. We visited in October , so it was fairly quiet. It has been put together by local people and it's obvious a large amount of care has been taken over a number of years.
