Template:Use dmy dates Template:Use British English Template:Infobox London station Moor Park is a London Underground station in the Three Rivers district of Hertfordshire. The station is outside the Greater London boundary but is in both Zone 6 and Zone 7.

Moor Park station is located between Rickmansworth (towards Amersham), Croxley (towards Watford) and Northwood (towards central London) stations.

It lies between Sandy Lodge Golf Course and Moor Park. The station has four platforms, two for northbound trains (one for the Watford service and one for the Amersham service) and two for southbound trains to Baker Street (one for the slow trains and one for fast - although southbound services vary in the morning peak).

Despite sharing the fast lines with the Amersham/Chesham trains, British Rail (Chiltern) (now Chiltern Railways) trains to Aylesbury/Marylebone ceased calling here in 1993.
