Beautiful gardens along the Mississippi river with St Cloud State University on the other side of the river...swings for sitting if you like...walking paths...lots of color....have seen these gardens get more beautiful from the time we moved there in 1986 to visiting whenever we can now (moved away in 1996)...still stop and enjoy this beautiful place.

I was very impressed by the gardens. I enjoyed the layout of the space right next to the river. The gardens are laid out very nicely and made for a nice walk on a beautiful night.

Thousands of perennials and annuals planted along the Mississippi. Great winding granite pathways through the wooded gardens. Wonderful spot to meander and ponder your thoughts or sit a while and journal. Sure to lift your spirits.

Easy to find, great place with lovely paths to stroll and catch up with a friend. For those of us who do not sport a green thumb, this almost inspires you want a garden of your own but you see the staff hard at work and think it better to just return each year.

Beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon sitting on our lawn chairs watching the lazy Mississippi River pass by us while listening to a musical ensemble play restful songs at Munsinger Gardens.

My absolute favorite spot to spend time during the summer. Extensive shady gardens, water features with fountains, peacocks, gazebo, several swings and benches to sit and admire the views. Very old pine trees along the mighty Mississippi River with a glimpse of the St. Cloud State University on the other side. Be sure to make a stop here if you... More

If you visit Saint Cloud in the summer, don't miss this opportunity to visit a wonderful garden. The walks, flowers, and fountains are magnificent. Don't miss the gardens across the street either.

Even on a weekend when the road was packed full, this was a lovely spot to spend some hours. It didn't feel at all crowded despite all those cars, the gardens were beautiful to walk through, the shop has some neat items and good prices, the disc golf area was well maintained, and the path along the Mississippi River was...

It is so beautiful, a real gem, a quiet serene relaxing getaway amongst the hustle and bustle of the fast paced word we live in, took the kids and my friend who is visiting from Columbia, all I can say is: " How have I lived 20 miles away for 30 years and never even known it was there? I... More
