Can the word space be pluralize?

There is a lot of parking space
There is a lot of parking spaces

I think I don't understand the meaing of parking space
Each stall be referred to as a space Or each lot?

If each stall refers to as a space
then it's can be spaces?

There is a lot of parking space = there is plenty of space in which to park

There are a lot of parking spaces = there are many individual spaces [slots] in which vehicles are parked.

Yes, the word "space" can be pluralized. There are spaces between each word as you type.

individual spaces [slots] in which vehicles are parked - parking lots?

"parking lots" are large or even huge areas where usually up to dozens, hundreds or rarely thousands of cars can be parked. A parking space, in a parking lot or elsewhere, is where one car can park. A parkade is a multilevel parking facility.

Oh, that's not what we call it here. We call an individual parking space a parking lot and the whole place with all the parking lots a car park.

In Br. English, a car park contains a number of parking spaces.

And in the US a parking lot will contain a number of parking spaces.

A "stall" is not used in this context at all. It is generally used in relation to housing animals.
