A five-acre gem in the heart of Bridgehampton, Bridge Gardens is a unique public and demonstration garden with mysterious hedgerows, a wide variety of perennial and annual flowers and shrubs, and a unique 4-quadrant herb garden featuring culinary, medicinal, ornamental, and textile/dye plants.
Donated in 2008 by James Kilpatric and Harry Neyens, the Peconic Land Trust has maintained the characteristics of the gardens while introducing new elements and programs that tie it to the organization’s conservation mission, including an expansive vegetable garden which supports local food pantries, Community Garden plots, and use of low-impact, environmentally sensitive gardening practices.
We are excited to announce that our free self-guided tour of Bridge Gardens is now available through TravelStorys. The Bridge Gardens tour is narrated by Rick Bogusch, Garden Director and Kathy Kennedy, Senior Manager of Outreach. Listen along as they share the history of the garden and discuss the different species that grow there. You can download TravelStorys on your phone or enjoy the tour at home on your computer.
