Poll: The Pavilion, Ralph's Corner Worst Parking Lots

We asked, you answered — the worst parking lot layouts in our area, as picked by our readers

On Thursday, we posed a question on Lansdale Patch's Facebook site: Which parking lot for a shopping center do you think has the worst layout?

Almost 100 of our readers and fans responded with their input on the lots they find to be the most treacherous or most in need of a facelift.

Here are the lots and locations, with most votes first:

Lansdale Pavilion, Lansdale: 18 votes

"Without a doubt, The Pavilion," said one reader. "I used to work at the Maggie moos and there were SO many accidents outside of it. It's insane."

"I work at a store in The Pavilion and it's bad," said another reader. "Plus, they need to do something with the old Foodtown building."

Sorry I missed this vote - I would have definitely voted for the Lansdale YMCA Parking Lot - its far too small and crowded for the number of people that go there.

I would have voted for New Station Pizza. Really no parking there and if your lucky enough to get a parking spot, try getting out of there. Nobody lets you out.
