Amherst State Park is a small park in Erie County, New York. The park is partially in the Village of Williamsville and the rest located in the Town of Amherst on land formerly belonging to The Sisters of St. Francis. The St. Mary of the Angels Mother House, overlooks the Park.
Amherst State Park includes approximately 77 acres of State-owned land and approximately 3 acres of Town-owned land in the Town of Amherst, Erie County, New York. It is located directly north of the Village of Williamsville between Glen Avenue and Sheridan Drive. The property represents a significant area of public open space within an area that is largely developed for residential, commercial, educational, institutional and private uses. The highlight of the park is Ellicott Creek, which bisects the main area of the property. In fact, a majority of the park property (approximately 70%) falls within the 100-year floodplain of the creek. The property also features wooded areas, meadows, old orchards and formally landscaped grounds. The former Reist Mill, a locally designated historic structure, was located within the park adjacent to Reist Street. The park is currently used for family and small group picnicking, bird watching, fishing, walking, jogging, dog walking and a variety of other passive recreational activities. The main access point is at 400 Mill Street in Amherst.
