Virginia Park was one of many areas subdivided during the land boom prior to World War I. Despite initial enthusiasm, it was an area that developed slowly, despite the fact that the Highlands streetcar line (no longer in operation) passed through the neighbourhood. Over 80% of the original structures within the neighbourhood were built before 1950, but Virginia Park has experienced sustained redevelopment and infill over the years. As a result, the neighbourhood contains residential structures from both the very early and very late 1900s. Roughly 50% of housing units are low density in character (single and semi-detached homes) and the remainder are found in low-rise apartment buildings located in the NW corner of the neighbourhood.

The neighbourhood contains two prominent landmarks, Concordia College to the west and Borden Park to the north, while Edmonton Northlands is located directly north of the neighbourhood and the Light Rail Transit (LRT) line runs down 80 ST. With the North Saskatchewan River Valley immediately to the south and Borden Park to the north, many recreational opportunities are within walking distance for all residents.

The origin of the neighbourhood name is not known, but the neighbourhood was home to the former Virginia Park Greenhouse, established in 1912, which was located right in the middle of the neighbourhood. The greenhouse continued to operate in its original location until 1981 when it was moved to Ellerslie Road and 111 ST.
