Emery Park, one of Erie Co. Parks, located south of Buffalo, in the Towns of Aurora and South Wales.
Josiah Emery owned 175 acres in the town of Aurora. He and his family worked the land for over 100 yrs.. In 1925 the Parks Commission purchased the 175 acre property from Helen B Emery. Highlights were the Rock Garden, a 600 person amphitheater, a Formal Garden, a Stone Arch Footbridge and the Emery Inn. The Inn, est. in 1926, used as a museum and restaurant, was the former home of the Emery's. The Park contains sixty nine structures, 95% of the structures built in or before 1935. Emery Park has evolved into a 489 acre park.

The Park offers a natural environment for family gatherings. One of our nature trails was constructed by our Parks Rangers and is approximately 1 mi. long. Other features include: baseball, softball, biking, hiking trails, picnic facilities, x-country skiing and downhill- skiing, snowmobiling and tobogganing.

Cache Info: GPS and Compass required

Enter the park from the south (suggested), Rt. 400 / Rt16 entrance. Follow the signs to the Ski Lodge / Lift area. Follow the sign to the bathroom and park here at N42°43.055 W078°35.715. This is a four (4) leg multi - cache. The final cash is a 50 cal. cache can. I used the trails to place the cache. There is no need to bushwhack if you stay on the trail. Please be aware of others, when retrieving the micros or final cache, and please put them back as you found it, they should be well hidden.

Temp. Added Note: When you exit Rt. 400 and join Rt. 16, please be careful. There is major construction on the roadway. Also, after you enter the park area, be aware of construction going on in the park areas. They are putting in new water lines thru the park. There may be times that certain gates are closed. I spoke with Charlie, the park manager, and he stated the seasonal roads will be open soon. They are temporary blocked as of this posting, and will be updated. If you use your senses, you can find other ways in or around where you have to get to.

This was my first of four caches I located today in Emery Park. That was a clever third micro, and the first of its kind I have found. I enjoyed the whole layout of this cache and when I got to the final I looked around for a while before I was able to come up with this one. Nice hide! I took a small pin and I left a travel bug. Thanks for the fun cache! -Paleoman52-

Just catching up on ome logs.

We parked near the bottom of the ski run, mistake #1.
Met DLKempf and company showed up while I had the coordinates in my hand, talked with them for a few minutes the they wandered away for a moment and I re hid the clue. Headed up hill to leg 2, mistake #2. found that one fast enough and decided to head back to the car before heading to leg three, first good idea yet. I saw the other team heading for 2 on my way back, they didn't see me wave.Got back to the car and headed for three. DLKempf and crew showed up just after I did. He made the find and we loaded the new numbers and headed out in different directions. We got to the final first and in I went. I spotted the cache and decided to wait for the others before retrieving it, third and final mistake. Seems some of the DLKempf clan had to make a pit stop. After working up a good sweat sitting on that log got darn cold! When I decided I was just to cold to wait I grabbed the cache and headed out, only to spot the others heading in. That's ok, I needed to get to that nice warm car.
Thanks for all the fun.

Hey Sal, look at me...I'm loggin' on NaviCache! (Yes yes, I'm stuck indoors and decided I should probably catch up on some of these...hahaha). Here's the log:

A really long 4 leg cache...hehe. Good thing I brought my caching pal Chicky along for the ride, she ended up finding all four parts! So much for trusting my GPS. hehe.
When we found the payoff cache, Chicky was so taken with the Good Luck Bear TB that we had to snag her. I see she has already been to the Finger Lakes NY region...but I'm sure she wouldn't mind another adventure there. We'll see where her travels take her. hehe.

TFTC!!!

FTF!!!! Found this one with Mattcrad. After looking for WAY too long for the first leg, we found parts 2-4 very quickly. The cache is in excellent condition, albeit very full - I recommend taking something large and leaving something small. :) We took a journal book, and left a $5 Subway gift certificate and the Kalamazoo TB Mattcrad found in South Carolina. Thanks for the hide!
