Bancker Grotto Memorial Park

Located on the east bank of the Vermilion River south of Abbeville, this 4-acre park was once the site of the first Roman Catholic Church in the historic port community of Bancker. These beautiful surroundings are a haven for bird watchers and nature lovers. An elevated boardwalk winds through the wetlands along the banks of the river. The serene beauty of the majestic trees invites visitors to explore the flora and fauna of this hardwood bottom swamp.
