Lions Park is a stop on the Northwest Line (Route 201) of the CTrain light rail system in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is located on the exclusive LRT right of way on the South side of 14 Avenue NW just east of 19 Street NW and right across the street from North Hill Center and is 2.8 km Northwest of the 7 Avenue & 9 Street SW interlocking. The station opened on September 7, 1987 as part of the original Northwest line. The station consists of two side-loading platforms with ramp access from grade level. Pedestrian crossings are located at both ends of the station. The station primarily serves Calgary's Hounsfield Heights and Briar Hill neighbourhoods, as well as the North Hill Centre and its constituent condominium towers.
As part of Calgary Transit's plan to operate four-car trains by the end of 2014, all three-car platforms are being extended. Lions Park Station will have the platform extended to the East which will also see the level crossing of the tracks as well as the pedestrian crossing of 14 Avenue NW moved along with the platform. Construction has started in Fall 2013 and finished in six months. This platform extension required no closures and didn't affect wheelchair ramp access. 
The station registered an average of 3,900 weekday boardings in 2005.
In 2008, the station registered an average of 5,800 weekday boardings.
