Beautiful flower gardens-sunny area with a tremendous number of annuals and gorgeous perennials. The ironwork and statuary is lovely and such a tribute to St. Cloud history. The lower park is actually a different named garden but most of us forget that. That lower level along the river is a wonderful shade garden. Paths meander all over. Lovely in summer... More

This garden is across the street from Munsinger Gardens and is exquisitely landscaped, planted, and maintained. It has beautiful flowers for every season one would spend in a garden in Minnesota. It was a gift to the community by Mr. Clemens and is a beautiful addition just above the Mississippi River on which the Munsinger Gardens are located.

This is a very pretty park filled with flower gardens along the Mississippi River in St. Cloud, Minnesota. We took our granddaughter's graduation pictures here and there are many weddings that take place to take advantage of the beauty of the gardens and river. They also have concerts here in the summer. Calming place to visit.

We are avid gardners and when we heard of the Clemens and Munsinger gardens we made a side trip to St. Cloud. It was definitely worth it. The individual "rooms" in the Clemens garden each made a definited and distinct statement. The Munsinger park across the street was equally enjoyable. The fact that is was a glorious September day also... More

A nicely maintained informal garden, much like the garden we have. It's interesting to see what plants they display that we may want to add to our garden.

We spent a beautiful summer afternoon here. The variety and landscaping of this garden is breathtaking. There are six separate garden areas. We were amazed at all the different varieties of flowers, plants, and shrubs. We took pictures of several hoping to identify them and plant them at home. The gardens have a European feel to them with several intricate... More

It's right next to Munsinger gardens. Both gardens are fantastic. Neither garden has a charge. It's one of the most beautifully maintained attractions. Great for wedding photos or family photos

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
