Stone Bridge Built for The Patriot

Cypress Gardens had been closed for over a year due to flooding and hurricane damage. Not sure when it is to reopen.

Patriot Stone Bridge.

Stone Bridge Built for The Patriot

We visited Cypress Gardens and walked the main path around the open swamp. We came upon the Stone Bridge toward the end of our walk. It is just around the bend after the Memory Garden gazebos and the Old Camellia Gardens.

Stone Bridge Built for The Patriot Movie

The stone bridge built for the movie "The Patriot" with Mel Gibson still stands at Cypress Gardens. It is nestled quietly in the swamp surrounded by cypress trees and Spanish moss. It is cool to be able to walk over the bridge and take pics and stuff. The bridge is visible throughout the movie but especially in one scene when the remaining militia fall back to the swamp and an abandoned stone chapel -- which was also built for the movie and stood for awhile, but was destroyed by a storm.

Several films and TV shows have used the backdrop of Cypress Gardens, but the bridge was built specifically for The Patriot. Watch out for gators while you're here!
