Greg Parke (born 18 April 1948) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Melbourne, Footscray and Fitzroy in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

Parke made his VFL debut in 1968 with Melbourne and finished the season with more Brownlow Medal votes then any other Melbourne player. He played most of his football at centre half forward and in 1970 took 238 marks, the most in the league that season. His best year in front of goal came in 1972 when he topped Melbourne's goalkicking with 63 goals. In 1974 he crossed to Footscray where he played two seasons before finishing his career with one year stints at Norwood in the South Australian National Football League and Fitzroy.
