This is a jewel in our city. Beautiful gardens and the price is free! There is a rose garden, perennial garden, white garden and multi-colored gardens on top. There is also a gift shop that sells garden items, water and snacks. Down below is Munsinger Gardens along the river. This garden is mostly shade and also beautiful.

Gorgeous free botanical gardens on two levels. The lower level borders the Mississippi RIver, and heavily treed. The upper gardens are more formal and have a largish rose garden at the north end. The gardens were endowed by the Clemens family. There are cast-iron fountains and a gift shop. Several different sections with very different flowers. Well worth a stop!

It is one of the very best places to visit in the St. Cloud community nearly anytime starting now or very soon (this being written mid-April) but probably the most beautiful with nearly everything in full bloom during June-Sept. There are many, many perennials and they are timed so always something is blooming and of course the annuals are non-stop.... More

If you are in the area during the growing season this park is lovely and large enough for a nice walk along the Mississippi as well. I especially like the swings down by the river. Well maintained, a large variety of plants and free!

My family and I always enjoy a stroll through these gardens. It is a perfect place to soak in the colors of summer in such manicured beauty. Great place for pics of the kids too!

Fountains and flowers...a beautiful sculpture of Mr. Clemons and Mrs. Clemons in her wheelchair.....from what I remember Mr. Clemons created these gardens so his homebound wife would have something beautiful to look at out her window from their home across Kilian BLVD......a true love story....

Weekend trip to St. Cloud. Took time to visit the Clemens Gardens and so glad I did! Just beautiful! Plenty of street parking. Leisurely stroll thought the garden, statues and fountains. Views of the Mississippi, and a great gift shop where I picked up some different Chai flavors- ( try the chocolate)- for a beverage back in the motel room.... More

So many gardens and fountains in the Clemens Gardens. I've watched this garden grow (no pun intended) and expand over the years. Still amazes me the colors and plants that are there. Never tire of this place.

For those who don't know this...Clemens gardens is one of only 10 gardens that has the prestigious honor of testing roses years before they become available to the general public for sale. It also is a stunning set up with hundreds of roses, large fountains, English garden design and a cute gift shop. Be sure to walk down the hill... More
