Word Gets Out


The Bridge of Flowers was recently featured as one of 50 of the best places to visit in Massachusetts in Travel Lemming, an independent online travel guide written by expert travelers. The guide boasts 10 million readers who use the guide each year as they research travel plans. You can locate the article here:

During normal operating times, the Bridge of Flowers is open annually April 1 to October 31, weather permitting, 24-hours a day. There is no entrance fee, but donations are welcome.

However, the bridge is currently closed for repairs through 2025. View repair updates on the News page.

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.
