Settlement of the area dates from the 1800s, with land used mainly for sheep farming and breeding. Some growth took place in the late 1800s and early 1900s, and again during the post-war years. The area has remained primarily a community of small farms. The population declined from the mid 1990s, a result of a decline in dwelling stock, following the rezoning of land for the Edmondson Park release area. Substantial population growth is expected in the future, primarily from the Edmondson Park urban release area.
Edmondson Park is a rural and rural-residential area.
Major features of the area include Tree Valley Golf Course, Ingleburn Military Heritage Precinct and the Edmondson Park railway station.
