Mount Warren Park, a residential suburb, is immediately south of Beenleigh and bordered on its east and south by the Albert River. It is formed around a once prominent mill named after William Warren, one of the principal sugar planters in the Albert River district recorded in the Annual Report of the Inspector of Distilleries in 1871. Warren established the Noyea plantation in 1867.

Mount Warren's northern border is about 600 metres from the Beenleigh railway station, making it a good site for residential development. The Mount Warren estate (1974) began around Rochester Drive, moving south and west during the next 15 years. A neighbourhood shopping centre was opened on Rochester Drive, and the Mount Warren Park primary school (1981) is a short distance west. Windaroo primary school, in the south of the suburb, was opened in 1992, serving the adjoining suburb which was named after the Windaroo sugar plantation, also managed by William Warren.

The Mount Warren Park golf course is to the east, bordering the Albert River. A sports complex is next to the shopping centre at the corner of Rochester Road and Mount Warren Boulevard.

The median income of residents of Mount Warren Park is close to the figure for the region. Higher income families reside in the more recent suburbs of Windaroo and Bannockburn, proceeding south along the Beaudesert Road. Census populations of Mount Warren Park have been:
