Sedgley Park is a suburban area of Prestwich, a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, in Greater Manchester, England. Sedgley Park is roughly bounded to the north by Scholes Lane, to the east by Bury Old Road and to the west by Bland Road/George Street.

The district has a large Jewish population, with a number of synagogues. There are many Jewish businesses, shops and delicatessens along Bury New Road, Kings Road and Bury Old Road. The housing is varied, but the vast amount of property dates from the 1920s and 1930s. Sedgley Park is also home to the Greater Manchester Police training headquarters.

There was once a park, located at the south-west of Bury Old Road and Scholes Lane. This has long since been developed with residential property.
