Bridge of Flowers

Shelburne Falls and Buckland, MA - This is the "Bridge of Flowers", an old trolley bridge that spans the Deerfield Rive joining Shelburne Falls to Buckland. The bridge is covered with over 500 varieties of flowering plants.


The bridge has between 15,000 to 25,000 visitors a year, depending what reference you use. Here some visitors are taking in the sights and smells.


This stone honors soldiers who fought in WWI and WWII from Shelburne Falls and Buckland.

Even more flowers.



The upkeep of the bridge is dependent on donations and the hard work of volunteers and a paid gardner.

What a beautiful bridge. Great idea to plant the flowers and trees. We should all plant more trees and flowers to cleanse the planet.
