The Mosspark district after which it is named is more closely served by Corkerhill railway station.



The station was opened as Mosspark West by the LMS on 1 March 1934.[2] There was however no Mosspark East.

The station reopened as part of the reinstatement of passenger services to Paisley Canal on 28 July 1990.[2]
