Enter the total lot area (ft^2) and the parking ratio (%) into the Parking Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Parking Area. 

Parking Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Parking Area.

PARK = LA * PR/100
  • Where PARK is the Parking Area (ft^2)
  • LA is the total lot area (ft^2) 
  • PR is the parking ratio (%) 

To calculate a parking area, multiply the total lot area by the parking ratio.

How to Calculate Parking Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Parking Area.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total lot area (ft^2). 
    • The total lot area (ft^2) is given as: 1,000.
  2. Next, determine the parking ratio (%). 
    • The parking ratio (%) is provided as: 20.
  3. Finally, calculate the Parking Area using the equation above: 

PARK = LA * PR/100

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PARK = 1000 * 20/100 = 200.00 (ft^2)

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total lot area (ft^2) = 2,000

parking ratio (%) = 50

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

PARK = LA * PR/100 = ?
