Saw this heading north yesterday, made a note to stop when we were heading back south. Nice views of the Androscoggin river and the bridge moves just enough to make it more interesting than a fixed span. Small parking lot on the south side of...More

A very quick stop along our Route 1 exploration. Be sure to get over to the far end to enjoy the sandy beach with excellent views of the river and islands.

Finally stopped after passing this wonderful little park a gazillion times. The walk across the bridge is fun for all and especially for photographers of scenery, waterways & birds. Very scenic sights as you cross from one side to the other!

The Androscoggin swing bridge was a fun walk to take to get some fresh air and stretch our legs from driving up to Rockland area from Portland. If you have some time it’s worth the short park and walk across this bridge.

Super cool historic bridge! Very fun to walk across as it does swing a little. Nice view for a sunset and had a nice walking path. Def is worth a stop if driving through .

Crossing the swinging bridge is a unique experience since it really does swing as people walk across it. It reminded me of a similar bridge in Hawaii. The bridge is part of a nice quiet woodsy riverside walk, and is also a remnant of Topsham's...More

Some interesting info about bridge. Short walk over the river. Waterview with little more to see than birds. Very calming. Can park and access on either side of bridge.

We were staying with friends and walked to this bridge (about a mile) twice during our visit. Historical poster explains the original bridge that was on this site. Bridge has been updated and affords great views of the Androscoggin River. Benches on the shore allow...More
