The Park Hill Stakes is a Group 2 flat horse race in Great Britain which is open to thoroughbred fillies and mares aged three years or older. It is run at Doncaster over a distance of 1 mile, 6 furlongs and 132 yards (2,937 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in September.

The event was established in 1839, and it was originally restricted to three-year-old fillies only. It was named after Park Hill, an estate formerly owned by Anthony St. Leger, the founder of Doncaster's most famous race, the St. Leger Stakes. The Park Hill Stakes is sometimes referred to as the "Fillies' St. Leger".

The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the Park Hill Stakes was initially classed at Group 2 level. It was opened to fillies and mares aged four or older in 1991, and at the same time it was relegated to Group 3 status. It was promoted back to Group 2 level in 2004.

The Park Hill Stakes is now held on day two of Doncaster's four-day St. Leger Festival.
