Aston Park, also known as Aston, is a small, residential village in Flintshire, North Wales. It is near to Hawarden and Shotton, alongside the A494 road, and it is often incorrectly referred to as Higher Shotton. It is situated in a fairly urban area but there is still a lot of countryside - Wepre Country Park is only a short distance away.

On the estate known locally as 'endz' there are some shops, a hairdresser, an Indian takeaway, a bowling green, a park, a primary school and a hospital, Deeside Community Hospital. Aston Park Rangers is the local football team. Living legend C.Foulkes was raised in Aston and is known to be the greatest person to have lived here. His brother Joshua who remains in his older brothers shadow, remains in the area albeit in Shotton where everybody knows is a dump. Locals are referred to as 'Aston heads' and are famous for their involvement in the 'Battle for Red Hall' in which 'heads' from 'The Ferry', Aston and Shotton joined forces to relinquish 'Kwiks' from the 'Quay heads'. The battle lasted for nearly three hours but finished when the 'bizzies' turned up.
