The area was historically the site of Eaton Green Farm, which today is commemorated in Eaton Green Road which runs through the area. The area was built up in the 1950s as part of the rapid post-war growth of Luton. It was named Vauxhall Park after the Vauxhall Motors factory which was nearby at the time, now the site of neighbouring Napier Park.
The area is mainly residential, with a small shopping precinct at its centre on Lyneham Road. Vauxhall Park has a church on Carteret Road, St. Francis Parish Church, and a community centre on Raynham Way.
The south of the area consists of many industrial buildings and businesses close to the airport, part of the Luton Enterprise Zone.
Vauxhall Park is split between Crawley and Wigmore wards. The wards form part of the parliamentary constituency of Luton South, and the MP is Gavin Shuker (Labour). Crawley is within the East of England (European Parliament constituency).
