If you like flowers and sunny conditions, you'll love Clemens Gardens. A mixture of annuals and perennials, Clemens consists of a series of individual, connected, geometrically designed (flower beds, walks, and arching paths) gardens organized by flower colors. Set along a pleasant and only mildly busy boulevard in a comfortable neighborhood removed from St. Cloud's tacky commercial areas, Clemens provides... More

My 78 year old mom loved this varied garden. We could have used a book to ID the numerous plants and flowers. The walkways were no problem for her and there were only a few stairs and we could have skipped them and still saw plenty of plants. The gift shop is unique and worth a stop. Huge rose display...

Not only a piece of St Cloud history but, the most Beautiful flower gardens in Central MN. Many family picnics, weddings, photo ops, etc... a place to find a quite moment.

It is so nice to have such a great place within our city. The flowers are always beautiful. Great place to take the grandkids just to wander around in such a pretty place. There is always something that holds their interest.

We visited on Friday, August 7, 2015. This is called "the Jewel of St. Cloud" and I think it's a GEM! Absolutely beautiful specialty gardens! These range from a rose garden to an English walled garden. The care and upkeep of these gardens is second to none. It is also free. You park on a residential street and can enter... More

The Munsinger Clemmens gardens are beautiful! We have visited several times and each time they are beautiful. My only disappointment is that they do not label the plant varieties. Sometimes I have see plants I would like to purchase elsewhere but have been unable to do so because I don't know the variety names.

Beautiful and peaceful gardens! Gorgeous blooms, trails, ponds and statues. The gift shop is great. We could smell the rose garden as we strolled the pathways.... very serene and pretty.

One of the best formal gardens my wife and I have ever seen. We especially liked the fountains. This is a must for garden lovers.

Have shared many memories here with my loved ones through many years. Have enjoyed every portion of these gardens; from a picnic in the lower gardens near the Mississippi to time-spent and pictures in the upper gardens. A beautiful and re-charging place to spend a portion of your day!

The Clemens Gardens are just above the lower gardens (Munsinger) and have so many things to see it is hard to know which path to take first! There are fountains and sculptures, waterfalls and wildlife, and even a gift shop to take home a remembrance of your visit. Be sure to bring a camera as you will want to take... More
