Eccleston Park railway station serves the Eccleston Park area of Prescot, Merseyside, England. It is situated on the electrified Liverpool to Wigan Line 8 3⁄4 miles (14.1 km) northeast of Liverpool Lime Street. The station, and all trains serving it, are operated by Northern. It was opened (along with the line) by the London & North Western Railway in 1871.
Though run by Northern, it is within the Merseytravel area and thus has a ticket office that is staffed throughout the hours of service each day (05:50-23:30 Mondays to Saturdays; closed Sundays along with the station). This is located in the main building on platform 1, along with a waiting room whilst there is a shelter on platform 2. Train running information is provided via customer help points and timetable poster boards on each platform. Step-free access is available to both platforms via ramps.
During Monday to Saturday daytimes, Eccleston Park is served by trains every 30 minutes each way between Liverpool Lime Street and Wigan North Western. This drops to one per hour each way after 20.00. No trains call here on Sundays.
