Guy Brasfield Park (June 10, 1872– October 1, 1946) was a politician from the U.S. State of Missouri.

Park was born in Platte City, Missouri and he graduated from law school at the University of Missouri. Park practiced law in Platte City, twice winning election to be the prosecuting attorney for Platte County. Park was elected as a judge for Missouri's fifth judicial circuit court in 1922 and re-elected in 1928.

In 1932, Park was selected by the Missouri Democratic Party as a candidate for Governor of Missouri after candidate Francis Wilson died in October 1932. Park resigned from his judicial position and defeated Edward Winter by over 300,000 votes.

Park was backed by Kansas City boss Tom Pendergast, and some feel that Park allowed Pendergast to run the state of Missouri.

Park was not eligible to seek re-election in 1936 and he retired to Platte City.
