Wandle Park tram stop is a light rail stop in the London Borough of Croydon in the southern suburbs of London. It serves the residential area between central Croydon and Waddon, and is adjacent to Wandle Park.

The tram stop is served by Tramlink routes 3 (Wimbledon to New Addington) and 4 (Therapia Lane to Elmers End) as well as route 1 and route 2 trams at the extremes of service.

The tram stop is located on a double track section of line, with platforms on either side of the track. Immediately to the south of the stop, the line reduces to single track and rises on a steep gradient in order to pass over the railway line on a bridge.
