Puotila (Finnish) or Botby gård (Swedish) is a ground-level 'cut-and-cover' station on the eastern branch (Itäkeskus - Vuosaari) of the Helsinki Metro. It serves the districts of Puotila and Puotinharju in East Helsinki.

The station was opened on 31 August 1998, making it one of the newest stations in the Helsinki Metro. It was designed by the architect bureau Kaupunkisuunnittelu Oy Jarmo Maunula. It is located 1.0 kilometres from the Itäkeskus metro station, and 2.0 kilometres from the Rastila metro station.
