Park Corner was settled in 1775 by James Townsend and his family. Townsend, whose descendants include Lucy Maud Montgomery, named the town after his former home in Berkshire, England.
The shore north of Park Corner is graced by gently sloping sand dunes. Sprouting from the dunes is marram grass, whose long roots mesh beneath the dunes and anchor them. While the grass can withstand the salty breezes, it cannot withstand being walked on. Once the grass has been trampled, the sand dunes shift and large holes called blowouts form, stifling the marram grass and disrupting the otherwise stable shoreline.
