Parking

Parking facilities include indoor and outdoor private property belonging to a house, the side of the road, a parking lot or car park, and indoor and outdoor multi-level structures.

The following terms exemplify regional variations in language. All refer to outdoor multi-level parking facilities. Some refer also to indoor or single-level facilities.

  • Parking ramp (used in some parts of the upper Midwest, especially Minneapolis, but sometimes seen as far east as Toledo, Ohio)
  • Multi-storey car park (England)
  • Parkade (British Columbia)
  • Parking structure (California)
  • Parking garage (Eastern USA, where this term refuses to distinguish between outdoor multi-level parking facilities and indoor parking facilities; to a Minneapolitan this term emphatically says indoor parking facility; to a Bostonian it does not.)
  • Parking deck (Sighted in both New Jersey and North Carolina.)

See also Parking meter.
