Meyrick Park Halt was a railway station just west of Bournemouth railway station in the county of Hampshire (now Dorset) in England. Located on what is now the South Western Main Line, it was opened by the LSWR on the 1st of March 1906. Intended to serve a local development, still called the Meyrick Park Halt or the Saints Conservation Area locally, it also provided access to Meyrick Park, an area of pleasure gardens including an extensive Golf Course. It served the Winton and Talbot Woods areas of Bournemouth. Served by local trains, the station had wooden platforms. The halt closed on November 1, 1917 as a First World War austerity measure and never re-opened.

Today the former site of the halt is shown by the width of the embankment just to the east of the line's bridge over Meyrick Park Central Drive. This can be seen from westbound trains leaving Bournemouth just after they pass though Cemetery Junction tunnel.
