    Flower Power!!
    Beautiful, BEAUTIFUL little walk-across!!! My GOODNESS, this was pretty!!! Gorgeous flowers, but don’t pick them!! Hundreds of lovely flowers adorn this bridge, formerly a trolley bridge, PLUS it’s within easy walking distance of the little inexpensive Trolley Museum and the free-to-see Glacial Potholes, a geological phenomenon. Loved it!!!

    Beautiful! Congratulations to Shelburne Falls!
    Spectacular variety of beautiful flowers. There are several benches on the bridge where you can sit and listen to the water flow by while enjoying the natural beauty on display. Wonderful idea expertly executed. Congratulations to the Shelburne Falls gardeners! Bravo.

    Bridge of Flowers is a delightful stop —open through October 2023, closed 2024 for renovations
    The signs advertising the Bridge of Flowers on Route 2 guided us into the small town of Shelburne Falls, MA. It’s a sweet little village of amenities with a river running alongside it spanned by a bridge for traffic and a former railroad bridge that volunteers transformed into the Bridge of Flowers. We visited on a perfect early autumn Sunday afternoon. There’s no charge and it was easy to find parking. If you walk across the vehicle bridge on a very safe pedestrian walkway, you can enter the Bridge of Flowers easily. The path across the bridge is loaded with all kinds of flowers from traditional asters and ageratum to zinnias, hibiscus, wisteria, gardenia and so many more varieties. Many are tastefully identified near the root. It is a sensory delight. When we got to the other side, there was a gelato and crepe cafe that made for a perfect respite. There were local musicians playing at either end. After we had chocolate and salted caramel gelato, we decided to go back. Across to get a fresh perspective on the flowers. It was well worth it to spend a little more time in such beauty. If you’re in the area, go now—it’s open through the end of October 2023. It will be closed all 2024 for a big restoration project.

    Beautiful walk, bring your camera
    Amazing flowers and a beautiful easy walk. Donations are accepted. No pets allowed. You can take nice photos both on the walk and also from the sidewalk looking towards the bridge. Wish trees, bridge and reflection in the water it’s stunning.

    Unique and beautiful
    So pleased we stopped here whilst travelling from Woodstock to Stockbridge. The bridge was lovely as were the people tending to it. We were lucky to see it as there were many volunteers digging up plants to move them to a storage venue as the bridge will be closed in 2024 for essential repairs. Along with a coffee, a look at the glacial potholes, Shelburne Falls made a fabulous stop for a couple of hours before heading onto the Mohawk trail towards Williamstown.

The Deerfield River was at near floor stage for an added attraction to an already beautifully tended Trolly Bridge Garden experience. This garden is not to be missed in the three growing seasons of the Berkshires.

On our way to the Berkshires we had a quick stop here and it was beautiful! The bridge of flowers is a wonderful combination of flowering plants and well maintained.

Still lovely as ever. Had family visiting from out of state and we did a leaf peeping drive. I stopped by here to show them the bridge and they loved the walk across.

Visited at the end of blooming season before cold snap. Nice leisurely walk across an old bridge that has remained in tact and flower beds have been created. Lots of varieties of plants. Beautiful and romantic.
