Although not as well-kept as the Clemens garden across the street, it does offer a walk along the river as well as different flower varieties. This is still a must see, offering tranquility and beauty

A beautiful garden to stroll or simply sit on a swinging bench and watch the river pass by. Plenty of shade and a nice breeze.

The gardens are a terrific mix of shade and sun areas that are well maintained, even at this late time in the season. The are sections of hostas and roses, themed color gardens and mixed annual or perennial plants. I loved the mature, highly trimmed stand of trees. My wife, a plastic flower gardener, enjoyed strolling through the gardens as much as I did. I’ll be back again.

Was not sure what this park was like, but needed a stop mid-way between Duluth and Minneapolis. So glad we stopped. This place was EXCEPTIONAL! So glad we stopped here. The backstory of the upper gardens is touching.

Despite this summer's heat and drought, the gardens looked great. Roses looked toughest, but annuals were huge. We saw hummingbirds and an eagle. Garden staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the plants. If you have never been here, go!

Beautiful park that we have visited for years, but don't stop if you have a pet. Pets are not allowed. Full of streps, lose bricks, and dirt paths, so not good for people with mobility concerns.

Beautiful gardens that are exceptionally maintained. There is no charge to enter these gardens but donations are accepted. Pets are not allowed. The Munsinger section is along the Mississippi with seats and swings to sit on and relax. The Clemons section is across the road and has several beautiful fountains among the gardens. There are also benches here on which to relax and view the beauty of the gardens. Highly recommend!

This is a lovely place to visit. It is well maintained and the Munsinger / Clemens gardens are well worth the visit!

Even in mid May, the combined gardens (Munsinger & Clemens) are well worth a visit. They are extensive at 14 acres. Beautiful setting along the Mississippi River. Just very nicely done.

This is a beautiful area to visit just to walk through and enjoy the many different plants and wonderful walkways along side of the Mississippi River. The fall colors are so beautiful all around the fountains and gorgeous scenic views. I love coming here to just walk and visit with friends and go to the little gift shop. I recommend it for anyone who has time to soak in this totally awesome place.
