We always love this place!

So relaxing to walk through. We have been coming here multiple times a season for several years. It is always a spot to bring visitors to the area too. Love it!

Nothing not to like. We go every year several times. Young or old its got something for you. Bees are everywhere but they arent going to bother you if you dont bother them.

The Munsinger Gardens is a wonderful, FREE escape to visit and enjoy nature! Enjoy sitting by the mighty Mississippi enjoying the view or walk up the hill to enjoy the rose garden. We have enjoyed the gardens for years - and they are never disappointing.

I've lived in the St. Cloud area my whole life and used to go past Munsinger Gardens every day to go to school. I took it for granted that everyone had gardens like this to look at every day! It is THE place to go for photos for weddings, proms, family gatherings and other special occasions. Or just a walk... More

If you love Mother Nature and think the best entertainment is the great outdoors- why not go to this little diamond right in the middle of St. Cloud! Thanks to all you workers who nurture this beautiful nature landscape so well. It shows in spades as all the flowers are practically singing as you walk through them- corny but true!

We stopped here on August 22, 2014 while traveling in a tractor trailer. What a lovely place to visit. Words just do not do it justice! We loved all the meticulous landscaping and flowers. Great for a couple hour stroll...or more! Plenty of beauty, space, benches, and relaxing photo opportunities. Stare at the water fountains and melt your cares away.... More

Wonderful place to take a peaceful walk, admire the flowers, and sit along the bank of the Mississippi River.

Munsinger and Clemens gardens are side by side located on the banks of the Mississippi. A beautiful stretch of riverside is enhanced with the wonderful smells wafting from the blooms or the wonderful paths to explore. A nice break from the hustle and bustle of a busy world.
