actually a parkway is a broad roadway that is landscaped similar to a park surrounding the road (hence the name park-way)... In the USA that usually just means trees and grass around a busy road... in california they do it fancier

And as I said... We drive on a parkway, and park on a driveway... :) Pretty trees or no, a parkway has a road, yes? So I stand by my original statement. :D
