Gladstone Park is a station on Metra's Union Pacific/Northwest Line located in Gladstone Park, Chicago, Illinois. Gladstone Park primarily serves weekday rush hour trains and serves a few other trains but is closed on weekends and holidays. The station is located at 5500 N. Austin Avenue, adjacent to the Kennedy Expressway. Gladstone Park is 10.1 miles (16.3 km) away from the Northwest Line's terminus at Ogilvie Transportation Center.[2] In Metra's zone-based fare system, Gladstone Park is in zone B. As of 2018, Gladstone Park is the 166th busiest of Metra's 236 non-downtown stations, with an average of 180 weekday boardings. [1]

Gladstone Park is located at grade level and is the first station northbound after the Northwest Line descends to grade level. Gladstone Park has two platforms which serve three tracks. There is no ticket agent at Gladstone Park, so tickets must be purchased on board the train. A footbridge is located south of the station to allow passengers (and neighboring pedestrians) to cross the Kennedy Expressway.
