The name "Cathedral Grove" was said to originate from the Governor General Viscount Willingdon in April of 1928. In 1929, the Associated Boards of Trade of Vancouver Island petitioned the government to forever preserve the forest.

H.R. MacMillan, a forester and logging industrialist, donated 136 hectares (approx 336 acres) of land that was established as the provincial park.
