Dunstall Park railway station was a station north of Wolverhampton Low Level railway station on the Great Western Railway's London (Paddington) to Birkenhead via Birmingham (Snow Hill) line. The station opened on 1 December 1896. Stafford Road engine shed and works and Oxley shed were nearby. It saw high traffic due to the nearby Wolverhampton Racecourse but closed in 1968 when services between Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury were switched to Wolverhampton High Level.
The station site has since been demolished although freight and passenger trains still pass through the site. There is a bricked up pedestrian entrance and ramp to the former station.
