The Clearwater Parking System is responsible for the administration, operation, maintenance, and revenue collection for the 3,900+/- City-owned parking spaces located both on-street and in off-street facilities including the Garden Avenue Parking Garage, the Municipal Services Complex Employee Parking Garage, the Station Square Parking Garage and many other locations throughout downtown and the beach. Services such as the resident, Downtown, and Beach employee permit parking programs and the ParkMobile app are offered to enhance customer satisfaction.

The Parking System provides many important results: promotes parking turnover in commercial districts, assists with relieving traffic congestion through efficient and well designed ingress/egress points, meeting or exceeding all current Americans with Disabilities Act parking requirements as well as maintaining itself as a self-supporting entity. The Parking System also provides financial resources to support the beach cleaning operations and the lifeguard program.
