Park Royal was a railway station in Park Royal, London. It was opened by the Great Western Railway temporarily between 15 June 1903 and 5 July 1903 to serve an exhibition at the Royal Agricultural Showground at Park Royal services ran from Paddington to Ealing Broadway station via the Greenford loop at which time it was the only station on the line.
