All switchports are by default members of the native vlan (vlan 1 in cisco). You can call that as a parking vlan if you want :).
If you want a seperate vlan you can create it and then tnter into the interface configs to make all the ports as access of that vlan. You could use the "interface range xxxx" command to configure multiple interfaces at the same time.
I think there is more to it then that for security. I know they all members of vlan1 .. on my notes it says other way to secure port is to place them to parking vlan " if parking vlan= vlan1 then why they mentioned that you can place them there if the are members by default" hehe :-)
As Niranjan mentioned,Seems you want to put the unused ports into the vlan,Called Parking vlan. It should be fine to do that way. Just make that vlan and no need to make the vlan interface for routing. Then shutting those ports down. I wouldn't use vlan 1 for parking or management devices(Vlan management).
Put all unused ports into a dummy or parking vlan that is not used for anything . then put that vlan into suspend mode and it will not pass data. I think any ports in that vlan will show inactive then if you look at it via show interface status". .
