“A Must-See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Munsinger/Clemens is the only garden of its type in the region. Actually this consists of several gardens making one large whole. It is always beautiful any time of the year, from after Mother's Day through September. Munsinger is along the side of the Mississippi River which adds to the beauty.

Be sure to stop by the statue of the Clemens' (she's in a wheelchair) and read the story of Clemens Garden before you go from either
www.ci.stcloud.mn.us/index.aspx?NID=192 or
http://activerain.com/blogsview/1721555/clemens-gardens-a-wonderful-reason-to-love-st-cloud-mn

Note: The gardens are different every year so don't think that if you've seen them once it would be a waste to see them again in another year.

“Munsinger Gardens and Clemens Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

If you have out-of-town visitors, or just have been there for awhile; all the volunteers and the 10,000s of beautiful flowers will brighter your day and anyone else you may bring with you. The two gardens are basically side-by-side - Clemens being rose oriented.

“Don't miss if you are in the area.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

On the banks of the Mississipi River it was a surprise to find the type of gardens you would expect to find at a English Stately home. 6 lovely gardens with fountains and a great planting style. At this time of year some beds were just being planted and it was obvious a great deal of expertise and care had gone into the design. Their are restrooms and a gift shop. going to the riverside area seating, more lovely fountains and to our surprise 3 peacocks. Reallt enjoyed our visit.

Liked the floral arrangements and beautiful walkways. It is also close to the river which made for an awesome way to just stroll and relax.
