THE GARDENS CLEMENS GARDENS

MUNSINGER GARDENS

Six gardens make up Clemens Gardens: Virginia Clemens Rose Garden, Rest Area Garden, Formal Garden, White Garden, Perennial Garden and the Treillage Garden. During the summer the six gardens draw 2,000 to 3,000 people a day from all over the world. So whether you’re a weekend gardener or professional horticulturist, visit soon and find the flavor of European gardens right here in Central Minnesota!

Situated below the Clemens Gardens and along the Mississippi River, these distinctive gardens lie under towering hemlock and pine trees. As a result, many of the garden beds are in the shade, making them astounding in their abundance of color and incredible variety of flowers. Included in the park are a large peacock cage, lovely wedding pavilion, wooden gazebo, and of course, the fabulous Mississippi River.

Gardens Gift Shop: See page 76.

LAKE GEORGE Lake George is home to "Summertime by George", a concert and festival that runs for 12 weeks every summer and is sponsored by the Rotary Club of St. Cloud. It's also a popular winter destination when the lake is open for ice skating. You'll find numerous paved walkways, a seating area, a beautifully-designed granite fountain and a welcoming plaza. Other features include a splash pad, public restrooms, playground area and performance pavilion. The on-site Municipal Complex is a multi-use facility. The Lake’s Boathouse building offers the community the opportunity to rent paddle boats, stand up paddleboards and canoes. Concessions are also available within this complex. Whatever the season, don’t miss this spectacular St. Cloud attraction!

A LOCAL TREASURE! Quarry Park and Nature Preserve is the largest park in the Stearns County Parks System.

Granite history runs deep here in Greater St. Cloud and the surrounding area. It began when deposits were found along area rivers and in nearby land. Today it is still a booming industry, and you can hardly drive a mile without seeing something made from granite. If you’d like to see some examples up-close, here are some options: Stearns History Museum, Quarry Park, Stearns County Courthouse, St. Mary’s Cathedral, MN Correctional Facility, St. John’s Abbey Church Interior, Assumption Chapel, St. Boniface Catholic Church, First National Bank in Rockville and Rockville City Hall. And just down the road in Cold Spring Minnesota you’ll find one of the largest granite companies in the world. If you’d like to learn even more check out the “On Solid Ground” exhibit at the Stearns History Museum.

A Safe Community You’ll find safe neighborhoods, easy access to recreation, excellent health care and abundant cultural and educational opportunities in the region. Rolling farmlands, sparkling lakes, peaceful woodlands and many nearby state parks make the area an ideal place in which to reside. And, don’t forget, a river runs through it. The mighty Mississippi River is a constant, scenic presence in the region.

Central Minnesota Located one hour northwest of the Twin Cities, and one hour south of the northern lakes and forests of the state, St. Cloud is central to both tourism and commerce. The area comprises several communities: St. Cloud, Waite Park, Sartell, St. Joseph and Sauk Rapids, and three counties: Stearns, Sherburne and Benton. Manufacturing, retail and service industries are the commercial backbone of the region, equally supported by the extensive, highly productive farming and dairy endeavors.

Family-Friendly Community

Childcare St. Cloud residents place a prime emphasis on family. Combined with a strong work ethic in the community, area residents have placed a high value on quality childcare.

SENIOR COMMUNITY The experience of maturing is rapidly evolving, forcing us to rethink what it means to “grow old.” We are ignoring the stigma attached to “senior citizen” and making active decisions regarding the way we spend our retirement years. Many of us are going back to school, starting businesses, even training for triathlons. We are redefining our place in society by taking control of how we live, work and play. Here are some opportunities available for adults age 55+ in the St. Cloud community. WHITNEY SENIOR CENTER (WSC) Committed to helping expand minds through lifelong learning, because education begins at birth and continues long after retirement. Interested in learning more about our innovative and mind enriching programs? Join us at WSC for our orientation offered weekly on Mondays starting at 10:30 a.m. We will give you a glimpse of our facility, programs and services. Check out our website (ci.stcloud.mn.us and click on Departments) for more information on how WSC can serve you. ST.
