Tame Bridge Parkway is a railway station in the north of the borough of Sandwell, in the West Midlands, England, close to the boundary with Walsall. The station is operated by London Midland. It is situated on the Walsall Line 9 miles (14 km) north of Birmingham New Street, part of the former Grand Junction Railway, opened in 1837.

The station was opened in 1990, having been built at a cost of £600,000. It takes its name from the nearby River Tame.

Pedestrian and vehicular access is via the A4031 Walsall Road.
