Sandown Park is a railway station in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, located in the suburb of Springvale, on the Pakenham and Cranbourne railway lines. Sandown Park is unmanned and is in Metcard Zone 2.
Sandown Park is located between Lightwood Road and Flinders Street, with station access from both via the station's underpass. The Sandown Racecourse and Sandown Greyhound Track are located near the station.
The station consists of two platforms, in an island format, with a large weatherboard building at the Dandenong end of the station. A large Metcard ticket vending machine is located at the entrance to the platforms, which is able to dispense most ticketing options available and also accept notes and coins, as well as a myki ticket vending machine. A coin-only Metcard ticket vending machine sits next to the disused ticket office window.
Sandown Park station first opened in 1889 as Oakleigh Racecourse, and was renamed Sandown Park in 1892. In addition to the two main lines, there was a signal box and booking office, and two sidings each over 600 metres long on the eastern side of the tracks, for the stabling of special race trains. The station had no platform on the up track, instead having an island platform on the down track, the other face serving one of the sidings on the eastern side. The station closed in 1955, being reopened in the current form for general passenger traffic in 1965. The station once had a second exit and subway at the up end of the platform, this has since been closed and filled in.
