The Bridge is currently closed to the public.
The Bridge of Flowers is closed for the 2020 year due to the contagion. Although the state of Massachusetts has issued guidelines for botanic gardens to reopen in Phase III, the Bridge of flowers lacks both the staff and the physical spacing required to meet those guidelines.

The Bridge is normally open April 1 – October 31, weather permitting, 24-hours a day. There is no entrance fee, but donations are welcome.
Visitors to the Bridge may express their appreciation by offering comments in the guest books, as well as donations in any amount, in the kiosks located at both entrances.
The Bridge is handicapped accessible for wheelchairs and walkers. The entrance on the Shelburne side, Water St., is best for dropping off passengers.
Public restrooms are normally available in the following locations: Information Center, Shelburne; Town Hall, Buckland; McCusker's Market, Buckland. During this time of pandemic, the only public restroom available is a portable toilet next to the Information Center. Restaurants offer restrooms for use of their patrons only.
We admit service dogs only, as protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act. We do not allow pets or therapy animals on the Bridge. NOTE: Please do not leave pets in vehicles during summer weather.
