The Bridge of Flowers is a beautiful, ever-changing attraction that is maintained by local volunteer horticulturists. It has re-imagined a bridge that once carried trolley traffic into a work of living art. It is a must-see for visitors to Western Massachusetts.

This is one of the stop on mohawk trail. Nice place but only for flower lovers. Also if you have visited any tulip festival then you can easily skip this.

So many varieties of beautiful flowers. Many are identified. But I would suggest having the app called Garden Answers. With this app, you can take pictures of the flowers or leaves and it will identify the plant for you. It makes the walk so much...More

We've been here three or four times and sometimes have found ourselves making a detour just to show traveling companions this lovely public "park" over the river. It is fun to have seen the Bridge of Flowers in different seasons as the flowers are different--roses...More
