Edinburgh Park is a business park in South Gyle, Edinburgh, Scotland. It is west of the city, near Edinburgh Airport and the Edinburgh City Bypass, and opened in 1995. The layout of the park was masterplanned by American architect Richard Meier. Edinburgh Park railway station, which is on the Glasgow to Edinburgh via Falkirk Line, opened in December 2003, and it is planned that the Edinburgh Tram Network will pass through the park.

It is not to be confused with Gyle Park nearby, site of the former Gogarloch.

The park has a bar/grill, nursery, and several sculptures, including busts of famous Scottish poets, many of them socialists.
