The electoral district was created in the 1996 boundary redistribution from the old electoral district of Edmonton-Avonmore and a small part of Edmonton-Gold Bar. The 2010 boundary redistribution saw the riding boundaries shift southwards. The 2003 south boundaries which ended at 23 Avenue were moved further south into Edmonton-Mill Woods and Edmonton-Ellerslie to end at Anthony Henday Drive. The northern boundaries of the riding were also pushed south from 92 Avenue to the Sherwood Park Freeway at its most northern point.

The electoral district was created in 1997 largely from the old electoral district of Edmonton-Avonmore. That district had become a swing riding through the 1980s and 90s being won by candidates from three different parties. The incumbent Gene Zwozdesky had previously represented Avonmore winning his first term in office in 1993.
Zwozdesky won his first term representing Mill Creek as a Liberal candidate. A year later in 1998 he had a high profile falling out with the Liberal party and left the caucus to sit as an Independent. He joined the Progressive Conservative caucus a short time later and was re-elected under that banner in 2001.
Starting in 1999 Zwozdesky was appointed to his first portfolio as a junior minister. In total he has held six different ministerial portfolios in the governments of Ralph Klein and Ed Stelmach with his last portfolio ending in 2011.

On November 19, 2004, a Student Vote was conducted at participating Alberta schools to parallel the 2004 Alberta general election results. The vote was designed to educate students and simulate the electoral process for persons who have not yet reached the legal majority. The vote was conducted in 80 of the 83 provincial electoral districts with students voting for actual election candidates. Schools with a large student body that reside in another electoral district had the option to vote for candidates outside of the electoral district then where they were physically located.
