For some buying a home near Clemens Gardens is a dream, homes do not come up for sale everyday along Kilian Blvd. When they do you need to move fast especially when you have a view out your front window of one of the most beautiful locations in St Cloud.

Clemens Gardens A Gift of Love

The  beautiful flowers, fountains and brick laid paths at Clemens Gardens have a very special meaning. We have found that many people who are interested in buying a home near Kilian Blvd do not know the Gardens are a gift of love. Clemens gardens are the creation of William Clemens who loved Virginia Rose Clemens, his wife.

Clemens Gardens is truly the jewel of the St Cloud area and seems to draw people into it’s magic. The garden is part of a greater environment of peace and tranquility. This is because they were created as an expression of one mans true love.


How did Clemens gardens come about

In 1990 William and Virginia donated the land across from their home to the city, along with material to create what is today the Virginia Clemens Rose Gardens. The rose garden is now home to over 1100 roses including one very special soft white rose named for Virginia.

As Virginia became more debilitated by illness William acquired the land across from their home and adjacent to Munsinger Gardens. This land was to build gardens she could see from the home as she was becoming less able to enjoy Munsinger Gardens. It is just a short walk from the family residence on Kilian Boulevard.


Clemens Gardens history

Clemens Gardens has expanded since the 1990s when it began, there are now six different gardens. The Virginia Clemens Rose Garden, Rest Area Garden, Formal Garden, White Garden, Perennial Garden, and the Treillage Garden are all the different sections, each special in it’s own way.

People drive calmly along Kilian Boulevard, park, and slowly walk toward the gardens. It is as though the approach is as wonderful as being in the gardens themselves, and here, in the city of St Cloud, the hustle of life slows gently. Might I suggest when you visit to turn off your cell phone before you get out of the car. It is the best place to take a walk and quiet the mind, or to just stop and smell the roses.
