Look for inspiration at two distinct gardens spanning several city blocks across the Mississippi River from St. Cloud State University. Clemens Garden takes its inspiration from formal full-sun European gardens with fountains, hundreds of rosebushes and themed sections. Historic Munsinger Garden offers a lush shady meander with the river as its backdrop. 1-320-251-4170;
