Century Park Station is an LRT station on the Capital Line in Edmonton, Alberta. It is a ground-level station located at 111 Street near 23 Avenue, and is named after the transit-oriented development Century Park, located on the former Heritage Mall site next to the station. Century Park is currently the southern terminus of both the Capital Line and the Metro Line.

The station was officially opened on April 24, 2010, with regular service commencing on April 25, 2010.[2][3]

The station has a 123 metre long centre loading platform that can accommodate two trains at the same time, one on each side of the platform. The platform is exactly nine metres wide.[4] It also has a grade separated pedestrian overpass connecting the platform to the Century Park Transit Centre and the Century Park development. A 1,230 stall park and ride lot is adjacent to the station.
