About Peconic Land Trust

A five-acre gem in the heart of Bridgehampton, Peconic Land Trust’s 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 to the Peconic Land Trust, 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, the use of sustainable gardening practices, and 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.

Bridge Gardens is open daily, 10 am to 4 pm. Free admission. Address: 36 Mitchell Lane, Bridgehampton, NY 11932. Phone: 631.283.3195.

Memberships and donations help sustain the garden. To learn more and to become a member, visit  or call 631.283.3195.

Peconic Land Trust, founded in 1983, conserves Long Island’s working farms, natural lands, and heritage for our communities now and in the future.
