Design and services
Similar to both Dun Laoghaire railway station and Leixlip Louisa Bridge railway station, the station building is on the bridge that connects the two platforms. From here there are lifts and stairs down to each platform. It is an unmanned station.
The station is served by Western Commuter services. Both main services (westbound to Maynooth and Longford and eastbound to Dublin city centre and Docklands branch services (from Clonsilla to Docklands) call at the station. InterCity services do not call at the station, although one can interchange at either Maynooth or Dublin Connolly railway station.
It opened on 21 January 2008 as 'Phoenix Park' station but was renamed on 25 September 2011 to 'Navan Road Parkway'.
The station was built by the developers of the Phoenix Park Racecourse Apartments (built, as their name implies on the site of the old Phoenix Park Racecourse). Although the station itself is neither on the grounds of the former racecourse nor the Phoenix Park proper.
With the start of the new railway time timetable on 25 September 2011, the station was renamed Navan Road Parkway.
