Carole Park was half residential, half industrial, with the Logan Motorway separating the two areas. As of May 2010 the residential part of Carole Park changed to Ellen Grove and allocated 4078 as their new Brisbane post code. It is now purely used for industrial purposes with the population at the 2011 Australian Census being nil.
The industrial side is part of the City of Ipswich, while the residential side comes under City of Brisbane. The peculiar division was the result of Shire of Moreton being absorbed into Brisbane, Ipswich and Esk during the 1990s.
The suburb was not settled until the 1940s with the exception of a few farms. Electricity was provided around 1965 and mains water in 1969. The Queensland Housing Commission provided housing to residents in the 1970s.
It is a quiet suburb with a primary school and a small shopping centre. There is easy access to trains and the motorway. A public swimming pool was opened in 1995.
