Népliget (approximate translation: "People's Park") is located in Budapest, Hungary. It is a central bus station for coaches. In front of the bus station, there is a large, open field which is practically called the Népliget, but Hungarians tend to use Népliget in relation with the bus centre.

Beside the coach station and the park itself, Népliget is also noted for the Planetarium.

The 3rd Metro line (North-South line) in Budapest has a stop there. The tram #1-#1A have three stops along the north-western border of the Népliget.

Népliget park also was the location of motorcycle and car races between 1936 and 1972.
