Petrivka (Ukrainian: Петрівка) is a station on Kiev Metro's Kurenivsko-Chervonoarmiyska Line. The station was opened on December 19, 1980 in the Petrivka neighbourhood of the Podilskyi Raion of Kiev near Petrivka Railway Station. It was designed by I.L. Maslenkov, T.A. Tselikovska, A.S. Krushynskyi, and F.M. Zaremba.

The station is located shallow underground and consists of a central hall with columns. The walls along the tracks have been covered with yellow marble and decorated with two abstract reliefs. Hanging above one of the entrances into the station's hall is a colourful mosaic. The station is accessible by passenger tunnels; the northern one leading to a square, the southern one — to Petrivka Railway Station (for which it is named).
