The suburb was added to the municipality in 1939. It was named after the property "Turvey Park" established by Thomas Turvey (died 14 January 1889), a licensee and store owner. A large family vault on the property was moved to the Church of England proportion of the Wagga Wagga Monumental Cemetery to allow for the construction of the intersection of Mitchelmore St and Hodson Ave in 1941 (Morris, p. 214). A commemorative plaque now marks the vicinity of the original site.
