A parked Internet domain is one which is taken, but it's not associated with another service - web or e-mail hosting. Basically, this kind of domain address won't open any real content if you type it inside an Internet browser, but no one else can take it as you have already registered it and you are its owner. The advantage of obtaining a domain name and parking it afterwards is that you can keep it and not stress that someone else might register it meanwhile if, for instance, the site for it is not ready yet. You are able to create a short-term Under Construction webpage for a parked domain while you're working on the web site, or forward it to some other web address - temporarily or permanently. The latter option can be used if you have already registered domain.com, for example, and you acquire domain.net and domain.org, in order to protect a brand name or a trademark. In cases like this, the .net and .org domain addresses can be parked and forwarded to the .com as you do not need different sites for them.
