Century Park Station is an LRT station on the Capital Line in Edmonton, Alberta. It is a ground-level station located at 111 Street near 23 Avenue, and is named after the transit-oriented development Century Park, located on the former Heritage Mall site next to the station. Century Park is currently the southern terminus of the Capital Line.

The station was officially opened on April 24, 2010, with regular service commencing on April 25, 2010.[2][3]
