Luke Parks came to Adelaide having been Sydney Swans Academy player. His aim was to enhance his chances of being selected for the AFL after being overlooked in the 2019 Draft. Parks says former Collingwood player and Bays hero Jesse White was the reason why he joined the Tigers, persuading him to look at Glenelg rather than his initial choice, South Adelaide.

A strong overhead mark with the ability to time leaving his player, Parks made the League side straight away. Parks became an important defensive player for the Bays, often taking on the 2nd or 3rd tall forward in a defence lacking premiership heroes Aaron Joseph (retired) and Chris Curran (work/injury). Parks played every game in the shortened 2020 season.

Selected by Carlton in the 2020 rookie draft., his stay at the Bay was brief but his goal met.
