Born in Los Angeles, California, Park's family moved to Vancouver in Canada when she was 22 months old. Grace considers herself to be a Canadian, while also recognizing her Korean heritage.
Park broke into film with a small role in the Jet Li movie Romeo Must Die. In the few years following, she appeared in episodes of The Outer Limits, Beyond Belief, Dark Angel, The Immortal and Stargate SG-1. Following this, Grace Park was one of the last two finalists up for the role of "Kara "Starbuck" Thrace", the other being Katee Sackhoff, who ultimately got the part.
She also starred in the Canadian television series Edgemont (with future BSG co-star Dominic Zamprogna) and the 2007 real-time strategy game Command & Conquer 3: Tiberian Wars as Lt. Sandra Telfair, a member of the GDI Forces.
Park holds a degree in psychology and speaks English, Korean, some French and Cantonese, and is currently improving her Spanish.
Park currently co-stars in another re-imagined series: Hawaii Five-0.
