Park Mark is a national standard for UK car parks that have low crime and measures in place to ensure the safety of people and vehicles. A Park Mark is awarded to each car park that achieves the challenging standards.

Each car park undergoes a rigorous assessment by specially trained police assessors. Those achieving the award have management practices and other measures that actively reduce crime. They look safer, they feel safer, they are safer!

Park Mark helps drivers find safer, cleaner, brighter car parks

In the UK, a quarter of car parks have been assessed under the Safer Parking Scheme and achieved the Park Mark award. That’s almost 5,000 of an estimated 17,000-20,000 car parks across the country where people regularly park their vehicles. Park Mark gives drivers assurance they are choosing a safer place to park.

Park Mark accredited car parks can be found at train stations, hospitals, universities, town centres, shopping centres, leisure centres, airports, supermarkets, banks and office blocks. The smallest has spaces for just ten cars; the largest have up to 13,000. They’re in cities, towns, villages and tourist attractions.

Park Mark can help you find car parks to confidently leave your vehicle in a safer environment for you, your passengers and vehicle.
