This is one of the most beautiful places in the St. Cloud Area. A must see. It sits on the Mississippi River and SCSU is right across the river. I love the many different flowers.

I have been coming here for years! I love the beautiful arrangements of flowers, plants, and trees. You can tell that they work VERY hard maintaining the place. Whether you like to snap pictures or go for a stroll, I definitely recommend visiting during the summer. I have gone by myself or with others... it is always a beautiful site... More

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.

Munsinger Garden, Clemens Garden and Riverside Park are all within walking distance from each other. They are located on the Mississippi River directly across the river from St. Cloud State University on Killian Blvd. During summer and fall, Munsinger Gardens has beautiful flower beds to walk through. Whenever in St. Cloud, I take my Mom and Dad to see the... More

The gardens are very beautiful in spring and summer. Worth the drive by or a walk through. There is nothing to dislike about the gardens.

I just wrote a review for Clemens Garden which are just up the hill from Munsinger Gardens. There is soooo much beauty to take in that you cannot go wrong planning to spend time at both. I forgot to mention that during the summer months, there are concerts in both-some on Sunday afternoons and some on weekday evenings. There are... More

This absolutely beautiful, meticulously manicured garden is must see for both locals and visitors to the area. The only thing that would improve it would be if all the flower varieties were identified with markers.

The walking paths and flowers at Munsingers are always beautiful and taken care of so well. The only thing that peeves me a bit is they don't want you feeding the ducks. What?? I can remember Munsinger gardens as a kid with the old 2 lane bridge and the higher walls on the south side of the park.
