This national park has attracted people since approximately 1200 BC; Otomíes are thought to have been the first to live in the "Ajusco area". During the pre-Columbian Era, an area that was named as Tlalpan was inhabited by natives known as Tepanecas along the San Buenaventura River.

Cumbres del Ajusco National Park was created by "decree" on September 23, 1936 by the Mexican federal government. The park was later expanded to the size it is now of 920 hectares (3.6 sq mi) on May 19, 1947.
