Baloži was founded soon after the Second World War; as a village at the time, it was developed for the nearby peat factory workers. Oldest part of the town is built in Stalinist style. During 1970s territory of the village was expanded towards A7 highway. During 1980s this part was built as a modern residential district and called Titurga. In 1991 Baloži received town rights. After Latvian administrative territorial reform of 2009 Baloži became part of Ķekava Municipality and thus becoming one of the few Latvian towns which are not municipal centres.
