if you can express everything you want with a polygon, you should not use a
site relation, IMHO.

you can also in this case (provided the parkings are not mapped as nodes)
do it with a multipolygon-relation.
Here is an example for a site with a parking where you can't use a
multipolygon (as the shop is a node), ignore the "role" name, I just made
it up and it is not standard, and there are no other tags on the site for
the moment.
