“Evnageline Oak on the Bayou Teche”
Review of Evangeline Oak

Reviewed 22 February 2017

Sometimes when you live in a town with historic things you tend to take them for granted. however, last fall we took the kidos for a walk on the boardwalk near the Evangeline Oak and reminisced a little. This is a great place for a small picnic. It's shady, there are benches, it's very quaint, and of course there's the "tree" (and it's all free). Oh, and it's close to several other attractions/eateries if you choose. Check it out.

We visited the small park several times. It was neat and well maintained. We enjoyed the walkway by the water behind the oak.

When Longfellow wrote the poem "Evangeline" the old oak tree was the meeting place for the characters in the poem. That was 170 years ago and the majestic oak still stands.

The village of Saint Martinville has done a wonderful job of memorializing this work of art and the tree that depicts it.

Nice little park. The story behind the tree is intriguing. Quick stop. Saint Martinville is a quaint little town.

Located on the Bayou Teche. There is a large Oak Tree. The tree is associated with a Longfellow poem "Evangeline".
The park is small. There is a walkway along the Bayou.
