Polar Caves Park was discovered by a group of local teenagers playing in the boulders beneath Mt. Haycock in the year 1900. Twenty-two years later Edwin Collishaw, seeing the potential, opened the caves to the public. He chose the name Polar Caves due to the cold air currents issuing from the passageways. The perpetual cold air rises from glacial ice preserved for ages below the boulders. In 1935 the park was purchased by its present ownership, Resort Enterprises.
