Melrose/Cedar Park is a passenger station on the MBTA Commuter Rail Haverhill/Reading Line, located in the Cedar Park section of Melrose, Massachusetts slightly northwest of the downtown area. Historically the primary station in Melrose, it has always been supplemented by nearby Wyoming Hill and Melrose Highlands stations. As with the other two MBTA rail stations in Melrose, it would have become a station on the Orange Line extension north to Reading, had that project not been cancelled due to lack of funding.
Melrose/Cedar Park station has two low-level platforms serving the line's two tracks; it is not handicapped accessible.
Four MBTA Bus routes stop approximately 0.25 miles (0.40 km) east of the station on Main Street:
- 106 Franklin Square, Melrose - Wellington Station via Main Street, Melrose; Lebanon Street, Melrose/Malden & Malden Center Station
- 131 Melrose Highlands - Malden Center Station via East Side Melrose & Oak Grove
- 136 Reading Depot - Malden Center Station via Wakefield, Melrose & Oak Grove
