Greenwich Park railway station was a railway station in Greenwich, London opened in 1888 by the London, Chatham and Dover Railway. It was intended to rival the South Eastern Railway's Greenwich Station which had opened over 50 years earlier. It served as the terminus for the Greenwich Park branch, which ran from Nunhead to Greenwich Park. It took its name from the nearby Greenwich Park, home of the Royal Observatory.


Despite being on a prime location (on Stockwell Street), it failed to attract sufficient passenger numbers possibly because the rival Greenwich station offered a more direct journey into central London. Due to wartime economies, and along with several other London railway stations it closed in 1917. The section between Nunhead and Lewisham Road was reopened in 1929 by the Southern Railway concurrent with opening a new connecting spur to Lewisham and providing the company with another route into central London. The section between Lewisham Road and Greenwich Park was officially abandoned in 1929.
