We visited with the whole family. Very nice color even for this time of the year. Cute gift shop with something for everyone. We had several photo opportunities with cute locations throughout the gardens.

Wonderful experience. Perfect spot for photos, relaxation and beauty. Many of nature's creatures all around. Bench woth swings placed along the path for an amazing view of the river.

My wife and I recently visited the Munsinger and Clemens Gardens on the shore of the Mississippi River in St. Cloud, MN. What a spectacular floral scene, and, best of all, it's a free attraction. If you are ever near St. Cloud in the spring or summer don't miss this one! It's well worth a side trip.

Multi-level gardens with walkways and a variety of flowers. It's great for photos as there are a variety of plants, many that are not common in Minnesota.

Gardens are Spring through Fall with summer special... More

One of my favorite oasis spots in the city. Beautiful gardens set by the Mississippi River. Bring a book, lawn chair, picnic, camera, and comfortable shoes to wander through the gardens.

If you like flowers, you will love Munsinger gardens! It was so quiet, peaceful and colorful. There are two sections, the flower gardens and an area by the river. We went to the gardens but were told to go back to see the rest. We will be making another trip.

Munsinger is a great jewel on the Mississippi across from St Cloud State. They have various colored themed gardens with various flowers and plants, trees and Shrubs. They have imported statues from around the world also. Two levels give different accents of tree shaded river view versus open area gardens. You will not be disappointed and will want to take...

We moved to St. Cloud because we stumbled on the Gardens. I have been fortunate to view several gardens in the states and 1 by Niagara Falls. I dare say St. Cloud Munsinger/Clemens gardens with the natural setting by the Mississippi River is hands down the best designed and inspiring garden I have seen. Yes it beats Como. The only... More
