My family and friends truly enjoy the serene beauty Munsinger/Clemens brings to our community. As a writer for the Examiner, I have in the past referenced the park as an important, peaceful and relaxing place to go.

Beautiful and serene. In touch with the outdoors right in the middle of the city. I was amazed at the colors and was impressed by the some of the flowers I had never seen in this area before.

High summer and everything looked in it's prime, There must be an army of gardeners keeping the place weeded, watered and blooming. My only request would be that the specimens were labelled better. or at all.

Nice riverside park with ducks, peacocks, fishing, and families! We were there for annual art show, but enjoyed the quiet side of the park.

I love wandering among the flowers and statues. It is a really beautiful peaceful place. My only issue is the mosquitoes. Be sure to use bug spray if you do not want to get bitten.

Beautiful time of the year to see these shady gardens in full bloom. Plenty of seating to enjoy the Mississippi river and the gardens. Don't forget mosquito spray, remember this is Minnesota.
