Wordless Wednesday: Inspirational Parking Stalls

The Camp is a non-traditional shopping center in Orange County.  Not only does The Camp have retail stores, but it hosts educational events, lifestyle related art shows and exhibits, along with other special events.  But there is one thing that always sticks out to me when I visit The Camp.  I love their parking lot.  A wall backs up to the parking lot, and there are letters spelling out, C-O-M-M-U-N-I-T-Y.  There are also little phrases that are painted at the edges of their parking stalls.

I traveled there early before The Camp was open, and got some pictures of this really rad, yes I said, “RAD” parking lot.

But really, these little sayings on the parking stalls are what make me smile, when I visit the camp.

Isn't it wonderful how much thought and intent went into something so mundane as a parking lot. Thanks for documenting this. Is it in California?

Wow. What an inspiration! Words are powerful. It's not just a big community event/place but also striving to make the community a better place as soon as you arrive there.
