Oktyabrskoye Polye (Russian: Октябрьское поле) is a station on the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. The station was opened on 30 December 1972 as part of the Krasnopresnenskiy radius, and for exactly three years it was the original terminus of the Krasnopresnenskaya Line. The station received its name from Khodynka Field, a nearby locality which was known as October Field during the Soviet era.

Designed by Nina Alyoshina and L. Zaitseva, the station features a typical pillar-trispan "Novaya Sorokonozhka" design, with polygonal aluminium coated pillars and walls with bright-grey coloured marble decorated with anodized aluminium artworks (artists Bodniek and Rysin). The floor is coated white marble except for the area around the pillars where it gives way to black granite. The two vestibules are interlinked with subways that allow access to Narodnogo Opolcheniya Street (Russian: улица Народного Ополчения) and Marshala Biryuzova Street (Russian: улица Маршала Бирюзова).

The station has a daily passenger flow of 75,910 people.
