We have been to Munsinger Gardens (and the adjacent Clemens gardens) several times, since relatives live nearby. They are always very well maintained and offer beautiful views any time of the year. The setting along the Mississippi River makes for a wonderful way to spend some relaxing time.

There are Peacocks, swings to sit on and ponder the river. Clemens Gardens are formal, with many kinds of roses, a gift shop, and sculpture of the gardens benefactors. Below the Clemens gardens down a path are beautiful flowers, a cabin, and the beautiful Mississippi River. Across the river you can see a walking path and above on the bank... More

We should have visited in the summer for a spectacular view of the gardens and fountains. We visited in October and the roses were still lovely.

You cant beat the amazing flower, fountains and plants overflowing in this garden. Every Rose imaginable and hundred of other plants right along the glorious Mississippi river, too nice of a place to pass up especially for free,

We were in the nearby area for lunch and to visit family. Sister in law suggested we stop here for an hour or so for a special treat. This beautiful garden is set near the Mississippi river and it was cool the day we visited, but still magnificent for a late fall Minnesota day. There were regular workers and volunteers... More

You'll better understand why people who live in St. Cloud love living there and rarely leave. My friend brought pennies for us to toss into the fountain in the middle of the small natural pond on the lower level.
