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....More

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!

It is a neat old tree, but it is the third Evangeline Oak, not an original. In a nice little park, easy to find, with parking, on the Bayou Teche.

This spot on the Bayou Teche has such wonderful history. Well worth a little side trip to see the beautiful trees and dream about the star crossed lovers that were to meet under it.

Beautiful location on the Bayou Teche. The oak trees are a beautiful sight. Nice seating area with plenty of handicap parking and access to a restroom.
