There is always something in bloom at these gardens. The colors are exquisite and the grounds are immaculate! There are steps and some uneven walkways but the Riverside paths and the unique seating allows everyone to enjoy the tranquility of the place.

You really get two for one when visiting the gardens: Munsinger and Clemens. They are situated along the Mississippi River in St Cloud. I recommend taking the time to explore both. It is a very relaxing and beautiful place to visit.

We visited this river side garden on a cold windy mid October day and found it to be calming, and comforting. The casual forested, park like setting is just right for this location. Crew members were re-arranging things to over-winter, and most visitors had stopped...More
