Glen Osmond , still affected by its immense growth following the expansion of mining, was the largest single population centre with residents. Two villages, Beulah Park North Kensington and Eastwood experienced booms in population growth and development between and , providing both housing to new immigrants and investments for the wealthy Adelaide Establishment. This development, however, was brought to an abrupt end in the last decade, the s, when depression stuck the economies of Australasia after decades of reckless expansion, hitting Burnside hard. By the turn of the 20th century, Burnside was becoming more urbanised.
Paddocks were still scattered throughout the area but the villages were steadily growing. Toorak Gardens , Dulwich and other near-city villages were gazetted and made open to settlements and advertised now as suburbs, moving on from earlier times.

Burnside's road system was completely bitumenised during the s and s through government-sponsored roadworks programmes. Plans were also laid out to replace the winding and dangerous Mount Barker Road.

The Burnside Council put much effort into this proposal, widening Linden Avenue which runs north-west to south-east in preparation for the highway.
The proposal was eventually rejected in favour of upgrading Mount Barker Road and Linden Avenue remained a huge out-of-place road running through an otherwise peaceful suburb.
