The Mercury Park Lane was a Full-size car produced by the Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company from 1958 to 1960 and by the Lincoln-Mercury Division from 1964 to 1968. During this time, the Park Lane resembled the Monterey, but with a higher trim level.

The Park Lane was introduced in 1958 and was applied to Mercury's premium automobile line. In 1960, the Park Lane name was dropped for the coming 1961 model year as Mercury focused its production efforts on the lower-end Monterey and Meteor 800 models. The name was reinstated in 1964 as Mercury again attempted to retrench its models in the price gap between Ford and Lincoln.

For 1967 and 1968, the Park Lane was offered with an even more luxurious trim level called the Brougham, a.k.a. the Park Lane Brougham. These were Mercury's Flagship products during these years.

Mercury Park Lane revived as a Grand Marquis package in the 1990s.

Mercury completely redesigned its full-size offerings for 1969, and the Park Lane name was retired at the end of the 1968 model year. However some Grand Marquis have been known to carry a revival of the Park Lane badge since the late 1990s.
