Ballantyne Park is a city park in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is on the north side of Hawthorne Avenue, between the antique firm of Donohue & Bousquet at 27 Hawthorne Avenue, and the Hawthorne Avenue fronting of Gordon and McGovern, Contractors, at 60 Main Street. The north side of the park is bounded by the Queensway. The park is small, measuring only 100 metres long by 30 metres wide.

The land for the park was donated to the city in 1929 by the family of James Ballantyne, a merchant and municipal office-holder. The park is made notable by the presence of three antique gas streetlights.

OC Transpo buses 5 (St. Laurent) stop at a bus shelter at the park.
