Parkstone railway station is a railway station serving the Parkstone area of Poole in Dorset. The platform sign used to say "Parkstone (for Sandbanks)".

The station is operated by South West Trains and is served by both the Weymouth express and the Poole stopping services.

The station is able to accommodate trains of up to 5 coaches, longer trains only open the doors in the first 5 or 4 coaches depending on the type of unit operating the service.

Until 1967 a branch goods line ran from here to the George Jennings South Western Pottery. The line extended from the Pottery to Salterns Pier, on the northern shores of Poole Harbour, until 1922. [http://www.sdjr.net/locations/parkstone.html]
