parking car park
Don't use the word 'parking' to refer to a place where cars are parked. Instead, say car park in British English and parking lot in American English.
A building with several levels for parking cars is called a parking garage in American English, and a multi-storey car park in British English.
Parking is used only to refer to the action of parking your car, or to the state of being parked.
