Southgate Hockey Centre is a sports ground in Trent Park in North London, near Oakwood. The centre is home to Southgate Hockey Club and Trent Park Running Club.

It has two artificial grass pitches (one water, one sand), and a grass area (which can fit 3 football pitches). The clubhouse building contains a fitness room and a steam room, as well as changing rooms. The upper part of the building contains a bar and catering facilities, which are used for sports/social purposes, and are hired by external organisations for parties and conferences.

The land is owned by Middlesex University (MU), and is currently leased to Southgate Sports and Leisure Trust (SSLT). An agreement between the parties allowed SSLT, in 1997-98, to build the pitches and clubhouse as part of a £1.4m project, partly funded (£626,000) by the Sports Lottery Fund. This agreement allows for MU's use of the facilities at certain times.
