The Bridge of Flowers is a flower laden bridge located in the village of Shelburne Falls in Massachusetts, USA. The 400-feet concrete bridge across the Deerfield River is covered with over 500 varieties of seasonal flowers that are planted and tended by local volunteers to ensure they remain in bloom continuously between April and October.

The Bridge of Flowers was originally a trolley bridge built in 1908 by the Shelburne Falls & Colrain Street Railway to deliver heavy freight from the Shelburne Falls railyard to the mills on the other side of the river. The railway company, however, was unable to keep up with the increasing competition from automobiles, as goods began to be transported more by trucks. Eventually the railway went bankrupt in 1927, and the bridge was abandoned.
