Agustín Ross Park (Spanish: Parque Agustín Ross) is a park located in the Agustín Ross Avenue, in front of the old Ross Casino, in Pichilemu. It is a National Monument of Chile.

The original park contains 100-year-old native Chilean palms (Phoenix canariensis) and many green spaces. Both the park and the former casino were named National Monuments on February 25, 1988,[1] and the majority of the houses situated in the park are private homes. It has become an attractive walking destination, following its restoration.[2][3]

The Park was severely damaged after the 2010 Pichilemu earthquake, with all of the balaustrades surrounding the park being destroyed.
