Homonyms Are Not Synonymous

I'll never understand why the hell we even let people store their cars in our parks, let alone do it for free.

Rondal Partridge, Pave It and Paint It Green, Yosemite National Park, mid-1960

Just because "parks" and "parking" sound the same doesn't mean they're interchangeable!

I say charge the hell out of them for the privilege of parking close to our museums and public gardens, dirtying the air and choking our green open spaces with their private vehicles. If they don't like it they can take the bus like a normal person.

You would hate the British term "car park," which by analogy with "dog park" does suggest that cars need parks as much as people do.
