Anthony "Tony" Parks (born 26 January 1963) is an English former professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper in the Football League for Tottenham Hotspur, Oxford United, Gillingham, Brentford, Fulham, West Ham United, Stoke City, Doncaster Rovers, Scarborough and Halifax Town, and in Scotland for Falkirk.

Parks was born in Hackney, London, and began his football career with Tottenham Hotspur. Though never a first-team regular, he was on the winning side in the 1984 UEFA Cup Final, in which he saved the decisive penalty in the shootout. In a career spanning over 20 years, he was on the books of 15 different clubs, making more than 250 league appearances, and had two spells as joint caretaker manager of Halifax Town.

After his playing career ended, Parks went on to work as a goalkeeping coach with several clubs and as one of the Football Association's national coaches, working with the England youth teams. In November 2008, he succeeded Hans Leitert as goalkeeping coach for Tottenham Hotspur.
