History

Barden Ridge was named after Alfred Barden, whose pioneering family is associated with the Bangor area prior to the 1850s. In early times Barden Ridge had been used to identify the geographical location and Lucas Heights was given to the suburb that developed here.

The residential area of Lucas Heights was renamed Barden Ridge in 1996, to disassociate it from the area containing the nuclear reactor and the waste management centre.
