About Impark

Impark is one of the largest parking management companies in North America, operating approximately 3,600 parking facilities with 8,700 employees in more than 330 cities across the United States and Canada.

In Canada

Impark began operations in Vancouver, BC, in 1962 with a single surface parking lot.  The simple concept of paying attention to service, combined with a strong entrepreneurial drive, led to steady growth during the 1960’s and ‘70’s.  By the end of the 1970’s, Impark dominated the Vancouver market and had established the depth of staff and resources to expand east.  Growth continued at a rapid pace through the 1980s with Impark opening its first lot in the United States in Minneapolis. The 1990s saw branch offices established in all of Canada’s major cities – including the acquisition of Canada’s (at the time) largest parking company, CitiPark, in 1995.  This move, along with steady growth in new accounts, established Impark as the largest parking management firm in Canada.

In the United States

Since opening its first location in the United States in the late 1980’s Impark has expanded at a rapid pace, including major projects such as an agreement with the San Francisco Giants to develop and manage 4,900 parking spaces surrounding the new Pacific Bell Stadium (now AT&T Park), Miller Park in Milwaukee, and Citi Field in New York.   Expansion into new markets through the 2000’s saw Impark firmly established as a true North American leader, and a number of acquisitions including companies in Portland and San Francisco, and more recently, the acquisition of Republic Parking in early 2016, substantially increases Impark’s geographic footprint and reach into key market segments such as healthcare, aviation, and municipal parking operations.

Meridian Valet

Meridian Valet is an operating division of Impark – supplying valet services for distinctive clientele in the hotel, restaurants and special events trade. We recognized that there was an unfilled niche for a very different type of valet service – one that provides first-rate staff for specific clients and their customers, who were not just a contracted service provider, but an actual part of the clients’ service team.

Our experience at prestigious locations taught us that valet services need to fit the demands of the client and the environment. That’s why we apply a client-specific solution – whether a hotel, restaurant or other special event.
