Edgehill Mountain's 734 feet (224 meters) summit was leveled, and houses were constructed on and adjacent to the summit. Houses were also built on the mountain's western and southern slopes. Serious problems with building on this land began in 1953 when winter rains caused a home to slide down the western mountainside. Edgehill Mountain Park was established in 1985 when the city purchased 1 acre of the mountain's undeveloped western slope and designated the area an Open Space Park.
