This was a neat bridge to see but not much else right around it. The parking lot on the 295 side is only a few spaces. It's easier to park on the Topsham side.

I wouldn't plan a trip around it but if your driving by it makes for a nice quick stretch your legs pit stop. Very small parking lot, and you can't make a left coming out. Nice pictures of the river and the railroad bridge .

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.

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
