Roanoke Park is a 2.2-acre (0.89 ha) park on north Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington. It occupies the block bounded by E. Edgar and Roanoke Streets on the north and south and 10th Avenue E. and Broadway E. on the east and west, just northeast of the junction of State Route 520 and Interstate 5.

The park was named by David T. Denny and Henry Fuhrman after Roanoke, Virginia. It was bought by the city of Seattle in 1908.
