Northolt Park railway station is a Network Rail station in Northolt, Greater London. It is in Cadogan Close and spans the boundary between the London Borough of Harrow and the London Borough of Ealing, with a footbridge connecting the north side (leading to Roxeth and South Harrow) to the south side (leading to Northolt and Greenford). South Harrow Tube Station on the Piccadilly line is 0.7 miles (1.1 km) by foot from Northolt Park Station. Northolt tube station on the Central line is less than 1 mile (1.6 km) away and is accessible by the 140 bus from Northolt Road.

The service to the station has much improved (until the late 1990s only peak hour trains stopped there). There are improvements in the access to the station as part of the Petts Hill road improvement scheme.
