More than 110 readers responded when we asked for nominations for the worst parking lots in Sacramento. Here’s a list of the ones that got the most votes:

10. Amtrak station lot

I and 5th streets | Downtown

▪  If you park here for a train, it turns out you are competing with people using it from the federal courthouse across the street.

  
 

9. “The pit” behind the Ridgeway Family Relations Courthouse

Power Inn Road and Ramona Avenue | Sacramento

▪  You have to go to a pay station, back to your car, then trudge up a steep hill.

 
 

8. Tower Theatre

Broadway and Land Park Drive | Land Park

▪  Built for smaller cars. Will recent changes make it easier on parkers?

 
 

7. Sacramento Natural Foods Co-op

R and 29 streets | Midtown

▪  It’s an improvement over the old co-op parking lot. Several readers say not by much.

 
 

6. Loehmann’s Plaza

Fair Oaks Boulevard and Munroe Street | Arden Arcade

▪  It’s pedestrians versus cars. “I feel like I’m about to become roadkill,” one walker says.

 
 

5. Safeway

Alhambra Boulevard | East Sacramento

▪  There’s a row of primo spots up front. Otherwise, it’s the Winchester Mystery House of parking lots.

 
 

4. Starbucks

Freeport Boulevard and Sutterville Road | Land Park

▪  It’s tiny and tight, with only one entrance and exit on a busy street.

 
 

3. F65

Folsom Boulevard and 65th Street | East Sacramento

▪  The parking slots are so narrow, it’s hard to get car doors open.

 
 

2. Safeway

19th Street | Midtown

▪  It’s congested and claustrophobic, but pedestrian-friendly. That’s good news for people moving into the new Ice Blocks apartments a block away.

 
 

1. Trader Joe’s

Folsom Boulevard | East Sacramento

▪  At times, the back-up starts in the street. Six spots behind the building are under-used, but you can’t tell when you enter the lot if they’re taken or not.
