Beautiful color-specific beds and of course the roses. Fountain and statuary are lovely additions. The Clemens family truly blessed our area with these gardens.

Our family has been visiting these gardens for the past 20 years and never grow tired of it's beauty. The informal gardens are next to the river, where the picnic area is always a must, as the formal rose gardens and fountains are on the upper level of the grounds and just as breathtaking! It's hard to describe....one must simply... More

I've been visiting this place for many years -- before I lived in St. Cloud and while living in the area. It doesn't get interesting until growing season, and then it's very popular. Great activity for people of all ages. The paved paths fit a stroller nicely...or if you have issues walking, I've seen people use those walkers with seats... More

When you walk into Clemens Gardens, you know that a lot of love has gone into its creation. From the rose garden created for Virginia Clemens, the garden has grown into a feast of colors! In one section of the garden, you can find gardens focusing on reds, yellows, and blue/purples. Another section is filled with a cornucopia of different... More

The roses are pretty, especially if you catch them in full bloom. A nice place to vidit, but is more busy on weekends.

Here's the story of the gardens: When a plot of land came up for sale across the street from the home of Bill and Virginia Clemens, they purchased it and then donated the land to the City of St. Cloud Park Department. Known for her love of roses and flowers, the late Virginia Clemens battled multiple sclerosis for more than... More

I would walk in these gardens adjacent to Munsinger Gardens every day if I could. I love all of the seasonal color. I appreciate all of the volunteers and staff who plant and maintain more than 10,000 annuals and more perennials. Make sure you get to see the fountains with their sculptural beauty. And pay a respectful visit to the... More

A must see when in the area. Located across from Munsinger Gardens and up the hill. This is a very gorgeous area by the Mississipi River. Many wedding are held here in the flower setting. This is a major tourist attraction and don't forget to bring your camera. From midsummer on it's a great picnic area or just to have... More
