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 Jim Kilpatric and Harry Neyens the Trust has maintained the characteristics of the gardens while introducing new elements and programs that tie it to the organization’s conservation mission, including a vegetable garden and use of sustainable gardening practices — and new in 2015: Community Gardens.

Today, Bridge Gardens serves as a multi-purpose, multi-disciplinary outdoor classroom, demonstration garden and community resource, under the direction of Garden Manager Rick Bogusch.

Educational and Recreational Programming All Year

In addition to educational programs on horticulture, including vegetable gardening, Bridge Gardens hosts a variety of classes on the arts, conversations with local growers and gardening experts, music performances, children’s programming and more. Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics and enjoy the lush surroundings. Programs run from April through December.
