About Park, Bark and Fly

Founded by Pete Madison and Bob Stout in January of 2006, Park Bark and Fly is at the forefront of parking services offered in the Orlando airport area, seeing the value in providing an 'off-site' parking experience that paralleled or exceeded the consumer experience at on-site lots. Rather than sending customers to a general pick-up location somewhere in the lot, the Company shuttles customers directly from their parking spaces to their airport check-in location, as well as assist customers with all of their luggage, minimizing efforts on the customer's part. Guests don't even need to worry about their return as the Company has a continuous shuttle service offered 24/7/365, guaranteeing their return trip to be as quick and easy as possible. Park Bark and Fly is conveniently located 1.4 miles from the Orlando Airport and is the largest off-site parking facility in Orlando; we are also the first off-site parking service to accept EPass, SunPass and OPass toll road transponders for payment.  In addition to our many other time saving services, we have partnered with many pet boarding facilities throughout Central Florida to provide the best in pet boarding and lodging to customer's four-legged friends and ease their travel worries. Additionally, the Company offers parking for Recreational Vehicles (RV's) and Boats as well, all at competitive prices. Our lots are well-lit and secured, offering both covered and uncovered parking.
