Gröndal is a district of the Hägersten-Liljeholmen borough in Söderort, the southern suburban part of Stockholm.

The name Gröndal means Green Dale or Green Valley.

Gröndal developed as a working class and industrial suburb after the opening of Liljeholmen freight station in the 1860s. The district was a part of Liljeholmen municipal community in the Brännkyrka municipality until 1913, when Brännkyrka was incorporated into the city of Stockholm.
