Järvenpää railway station (Finnish: Järvenpään rautatieasema, Swedish: Träskända järnvägsstation) is a railway station in Järvenpää about 37 kilometres (23 mi) north from Helsinki Central station. It is situated 200 metres (660 ft) northeast of the city centre on a small hill. It was one of the first railway stations in Finland. Local lines D, R, T and few rush hour trains stops at the station.

In 1999 the station building was moved approximately 25 m (82 ft) further away from the tracks.

The station has three platforms. Track 1 is for southbound trains, track 2 is for northbound non-stop-trains and the northbound local trains stops at platform 3. Tracks 2 and 3 form an island platform.

Next to the station is the Järvenpää taxi rank. Many local bus lines stops at the station. The bus station is 300 m (980 ft) north of the station.
