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.

Even if you just grab some coffee and a book to enjoy the park it's worth it. Not because it has a story behind because the park provides tranquality

This tree is in a lovely little park next to some water. It was easy to get to and there was amble parking nearby. The park is small and there isn't much to do here. The museum next door was closed when I was there. The church with the Evangeline statue is about a block away.

Down by the Bayou Teche just next to a small museum and a nice b&b stands an ancient oak, where Evangeline is said to have awaited her lover in Longfellows poem 'Evangeline'. It's a nice romantic place and you should go there if you are around.

Enjoyed visiting here recently with friends. Quiet, very little traffic and lots of local history to read about and see. Well worth the time.

Come see the beautiful Live Oak tree that inspired the poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Sit beside the peaceful bayou Teche and enjoy the shade of this magnificent tree!

Do not miss on Evangeline whether you have or have not read Longfellow's poem: this is the heart of the Cajun country and the place is full of charm. Stroll along Bayou Teche, make photos on the little kiosk, dream and absorb the atmosphere honoring the majestic oak, the beautiful architecture around. And do not miss the church, the Acadian...
