A proper place to park / A proper place to park in


Senior Member
Could I ask if both options are right?
A proper place to park (We can park here)
A proper place to park in (We can park in shop's car park)
And could I ask how to choose more suitable version? Is it upon of expected answer? (here-without IN, car park... - with IN)?
Thank you.

    Both are correct, and there's no real difference between them: the absence of 'in' doesn't prompt an answer without 'in'.

    I think the only difference is whether you put “in” after or before the verb – to me it sounds better after the verb (1):
    e.g. 1. You shouldn’t park on double yellow lines: the correct/proper place to park is in a marked parking bay, (in) a car park or on single yellow line outside the prohibited times.
    2. “The correct place to park in is….”
    Or you could say “The correct place in which to park is…”
