The district was named after the larger civil parish of Eastwood, itself named after a long-vanished woodland. The Local Government district was formed from the area of the First District of the former county of Renfrewshire. It was one of nineteen local government districts in the Strathclyde region. The council's headquarters were at Giffnock. The Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 abolished all of the districts and regions, and the area of Eastwood was included in the East Renfrewshire unitary council area.
