The word "Tonawanda" comes from the Iroquois Indians, meaning "swift running waters". This 4-stage multi-cache will take you along the banks of the mighty Niagara River, which forms the border of the City of Tonawanda on the North side.

All parts have nearby parking lots, so you may opt to drive to each spot, bring along your bikes, or walk the whole way. Start to finish is about one mile. The first three parts are micros, hidden in various spots throughout Nia-wanda Park. The final is a small 3"x6" rectangular Rubbermaid container. It may fit smaller travel bugs.

Really glad to finally get this one. I've heard many great things about it, all of which were true. Previous finder GuineaGal was with us, to nudge and poke us in the right direction at times. After finding the cache, we strolled over to the nearby hotdog establishment to enjoy lunch. Thanks for showcasing this awesome park, Rayman. TNLNSL/TFTC.

This was our favorite cache of the day. Just as Chicky and I got to the first leg and started looking we see someone approaching.

So of course the first thing to run through my head is, "Okay, it's a muggle. Better look like I'm not doing anything suspicious and pretend that the real reason I'm here is to enjoy the waterfront on this delightful my-eyeslids-are-frozen-open-30-degrees-below-windchill kind of day."

As I'm standing there pretending I can still feel my face, low and behold, who walks right up to us but Rayman himself!!! AWESOME!

He said he was driving by and saw some folks poking around his cache and decided to stop. We were glad you did!

After taking a long look at leg 1 ( and with a little encouragement from Rayman) I decided to venture after the first leg...and in the process managed to get everything below my knee drenched! BRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...... But I found the first leg! Hey, I'll take the frostbite anyday, as long as I get the find.

Rayman wished us the best of luck, with a promise we'd be running into each other later at Pub Night in NT. Excited by finally meeting Rayman (while doing his cache nonetheless), we didn't want to let him down so off we went determined to snag this one.

Legs two and three were VERY well hid (and clever). Much like the rest of the day we were very lucky and found them quickly. So on to the final!

Without giving up the most fun leg of this multi, I'll just say it was convenient we were caching in the middle of Ice-a-pallooza because this cache would be REALLY hard on a nice day with muggles crawling all about.

Thanks Rayman for a great cache, it was really nice meeting you! Hopefully we'll see you around the 'Owanda's as there are many caches still left for us to snag!

See you on the trails!

Szuchie. ;)

This is a late log. Actually found it about two weeks ago. #200 on geocaching.com, very good hides on all stages.

Probably a nice walk, but I drove between all the legs (too much beer last night). Challenging hides, great job. Considering the muggle dodging I had to do at 6-7:00 AM, I can appreciate what some others may have gone through! I finally snagged my first Subman TB, and I left a mini carabiner. Thanks for the cache, Rayman.

Challenging hides, nice park, lots of walkers and bicycle riders.

A great to to bike along the river. Muggles will present the greatest challange to cachers attempting to complete this cache as they seem to be everywhere along the riverwalk attempting to escape this summer's heat. We worked around them and had a great time completing this one.
