Logan Ridges was the original name for the suburb of Park Ridges. This was until the early 1890s, when the post office changed its name to reflect the park-like nature of the area.

Early settlers hailed from Yorkshire and timber-getting and farming were the primary industries during the 1890s and remained important through to the early 20th century, when tobacco growing was taken on. Success was fleeting and eventually poultry farming came to the fore; Ingham's Chickens becoming a major employer.
