Middle Park is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 5 km south from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the City of Port Phillip. At the 2006 Census, Middle Park had a population of 4012. In the same census only 82 were unemployed.

It is located between Port Phillip and Albert Park Lake, which is about half way across the western side of the Albert Park Reserve (a state park), hence the name "Middle" Park.

It is bordered by Canterbury Road to the north, Mills Street to the north-west, Fraser Street to the south-west and Beaconsfield Parade to the south.

Middle Park, along with neighbouring Albert Park contains some of the best preserved terrace house and Victorian architecture in Melbourne and is part of a strict heritage-conservation area. Many of the terraces line Canterbury Road along the former railway line which now has several more tram light rail stops since it was converted to tram use in 1987. Others are along the main shopping street, Armstrong Street. The fine old buildings and development restrictions in the area and new developments are generally sympathetic to the prevailing style, driving up real-estate prices dramatically, in marked contrast with neighbouring St Kilda.
