Tredegar Park (Welsh: Parc Tredegyr) is an electoral district (ward) and community of the city of Newport. It is named after the nearby park, although the present-day community (parish) and ward of Tredegar Park covers a much smaller area consisting of the Duffryn estate and immediate surroundings.

The ward is bounded by the Ebbw River to the northeast, the Great Western Main Line to the east, Pencarn Lane to the south, and the grounds of Tredegar House to the northwest. Duffryn council estate was completed in 1978, since then many new private housing estates have been built around the estate. The area is governed by the Newport City Council.
