Tuart Hill is named after the Tuart tree that once grew extensively throughout the area, especially around Dog Swamp. In 1914 the suburb name of Grenville was proposed as a name for the suburb by the Grenville Progress Association, but not accepted due to its likeness to Granville in New South Wales.
Since 1914, the Osborne Park Agricultural Society holds its annual show at Robinson Reserve in Tuart Hill. The show is usually held around the first weekend in December on Friday and Saturday and features displays of local produce, animals and livestock, carnival attractions and fireworks.
Tuart Hill has two large active recreation reserves: Grenville Reserve and Robinson Reserve. Grenville Reserve is a large cricket and football oval with facilities includes Council tennis courts, playground, cricket nets and centre wicket, change rooms, club rooms and public toilets. The ground is used by the Tuart Hill Cricket Club during summer months and various users during winter. Robinson Reserve similarly hosts cricket during summer with the Osborne Park Cricket Club being located at the reserve. Other buildings used for the Osborne Park Show are located at Robinson Reserve. Robinson Reserve is adjacent to the Osborne Library and Community Centre.
