Cars parked in a "No Parking" zone

Parking could refer both to the act of leaving behind a vehicle at a certain spot, and to specific locations designated for parking, which might also be called a parking lot. The term was most often used in relation to cars and other ground vehicles, but it could also apply to spaceships capable of landing.

On 20th century Earth, there were sometimes restrictions on parking, or even personel tasked with coordinating parking. Once while in 1996, Tuvok unsuccessfully tried to use Vulcan logic to talk a meter maid out of giving him a citation. The homeless Braxton had set up in an alley where no parking was allowed, as indicated by a sign. Inexplicably the alley contained a derelict automobile regardless. (VOY: "Future's End")

The fictional hotel called the Royale had several parking lot attendants. (TNG: "The Royale")

In December 2000, after repairs on Shannon O'Donnel's car were completed, it was parked behind the garage where she could collect it when she was ready. (VOY: "11:59")

After leaving the cloaked HMS Bounty behind in the Golden Gate Park in 1986, James T. Kirk instructed his crew to "remember where we parked."

In that same year, signs directing cars to a parking space could be found near the Sentinel building in San Francisco. A nearby antiques shop also had a sign saying "Don't even think of parking here" on sale. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

In 2004, a prostitute named Georgia Tandy tried to direct Loomis to "a nice place to park". (ENT: "Carpenter Street")

Charles Tucker III once parked a car at a place called Chatkin Point for a date with his girlfriend. (ENT: "Precious Cargo")

Jett Reno's wedding had non-denominational shuttle parking. (DIS: "Through the Valley of Shadows")

Similary, The Doctor once parked a car on Mars as part of a Holodeck date. (VOY: "Lifesigns")

Parking on top of a building

In 2259, the alternate universe version of San Francisco had at least one parking lot on the top of building's roof.

This parking was seen in the scene where Khan looks down onto the city from the crashed USS Vengeance

In space

Starships might also assume a parking orbit, or otherwise be parked at a specific location in space. Ro Laren for example once docked a ship between two warp nacelles. (TNG: "Preemptive Strike"). Starships might incorporate a parking brake. (Star Trek)
