Dunstall Park railway station was a station north of Wolverhampton Low Level railway station on the Great Western Railway's London (Paddington) to Birkenhead via Birmingham (Snow Hill) line. It saw high traffic due to the nearby Wolverhampton Racecourse but closed in 1968 when services between Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury were switched to Wolverhampton High Level.

It was the first stop north from the Low Level station, and was served by local trains towards Shrewsbury, as well as those on the Wombourne Branch Line to Stourbridge.
