Moor Park is a London Underground station in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire, predominantly serving those living in the Moor Park estate, but also in the neighbouring Eastbury and South Oxhey estates. The station is outside the Greater London boundary but is in both Zone 6 and Zone 7. This is where the Watford (Watford Junction) Branch in the future joins the main line.
It lies between Sandy Lodge Golf Course and Moor Park. The station has four platforms, two for northbound trains (one for the slow/semi-fast trains and one for the fast trains) and two for southbound trains to Baker Street (one for the slow/semi-fast trains and one for fast).
Since 2011, fast and semi-fast trains have only run during peak times, with services to Aldgate from platform 2 during the morning peak, and services to Amersham and Chesham from platform 1 during the evening peak.
At all other times, and all day at weekends, trains depart from platforms 3 and 4, providing all stations services to Baker Street or Aldgate to the south and to Watford, Amersham or Chesham in the northbound direction.
