Fellows Park was a former football stadium in Walsallmarker, Englandmarker. It was the home ground of Walsall F.C. from 1896 till 1990, when the team moved to the Bescot Stadiummarker.

Fellows Park was situated about a quarter of a mile away from the club's present ground. The ground was originally known as Hillary Street until 1930, when it was renamed after H.L. Fellows, a club director. Walsall's record home attendance was at Fellows Park. 25,453 spectators were present for the team's Second Division match against Newcastle United on August 29, 1961.

When Walsall moved to the Bescot Stadium in 1990 it was only the second time since the 1950s that a new club football ground had been built in England. A reminder of Fellows Park remains in the new stadium, in the name of the H.L. Fellows Stand. The site of the old ground is now occupied by a Morrisons supermarket.
