Exquisite formal gardens and relaxed in formal gardens on a river setting.

The formal gardens would rank with any large European estate garden in variety and beauty. The informal area along the river is a very relaxed peaceful walk.

We sit or stroll along the garden for endless hours every summer and fall. The flowers go on forever and the fountains and statues are just as amazing. Whenever we have friends or family visit from outside the area we offer to take them to these beautiful gardens and they are never disappointed.

I used to live in St. Cloud and would especially recommend visiting the Munsinger Gardens in the summertime or early fall! Just beautiful and peaceful walking around!

What a great place to go for a relaxing walk. And lots of spots to sit and watch the Mississippi River flow by.

We visit often during the Summer and enjoy each and every visit. It is is fun to follow the subtle changes in the flowers as we progress through the growing season.

This is one of the jewel areas if St. Cloud. Several different gardens, with plenty of different colors and walking baths. Quick access to the Mississippi river and a small little gift show. It's nice that St. Cloud offers this.

This is the gem of St. Cloud. Located along the Mississippi River it's a series of gardens and fountains both on the hill, and down the hill along the Mississippi River. Trails meander through the gardens, taking you through a variety of floral displays. Right next to Munsinger is the Clemens Rose Garden, which features nothing but roses. This is... More

This is a beautiful garden with a scenic riverside location. It makes a fun day trip from the Twin cities. I love the contrast between the sunny formal upper garden and the winding paths of the shady lower garden. Bring a picnic, or go into St Cloud for lunch. Plus it's free (but make a donation if you love it)

We were here at the end of September, yet the gardens were still beautiful and full of color. We had a relaxing walk in a wonderful setting.
