I've taken my kids here before and today I brought my 78 year old mom. The scenic views are awesome and It is very peaceful by the river. Parking can be an issue so be prepared to walk a few blocks to get to the park. Munsinger trails do have some more bumps than Clemens so be careful if you... More

There are gardens and other gardens--and then there is Munsinger Gardens. I enjoy gardens, but this is a garden I love. In truth there's not much to do if you find yourself for the day or overnight in St. Cloud. It's the kind of place I very much try to avoid (intersecting highways, big box stores galore, chain everything, cars... More

A beautiful gem by the Mississippi river. There are swings and benches to sit and breathe in the aroma of the flowers, plants and tree varieties. The Clemens gardens are across the way and a must see as well. We will be back!

It seemed to be mostly hosta and other perennials, but also some blooming plants. Very nicely maintained and a relaxing walk along the river.

We were here on a Sunday afternoon. The landscaping and plants were amazing. Such a wonderful mix of flowers and unique plants. There are many separate areas that are cozy and beautiful. The top portion (on the other side of the road) is more modern while the bottom portion seems more historic. It was a warm day, but the shade... More

These gardens are very well maintained. River view, Dam, walking trails . And it's all free. There is also a gift/treat shop on the upper part of the gardens.

We visited on Friday, August 7, 2015. This is a beautiful, large park right along the Mississippi River. This is across the river from St. Cloud State University. This park is free. This is a forested park with a gazebo, many benches es and adult swings facing the river. There are fountains and a wonderful canopy of trees to provide... More
