Most of the businesses downtown have their own lots in back, but there aren’t sufficient spaces for the demand. For me, it’s great if I’m going to be at the Tampa Bay Informer all day but if I’m going to Starbucks further down on Cleveland, street parking is my only option.
Thank goodness for the Station Square parking! It comes at just the right time, too. Suddenly it feels like everything cool in Clearwater is in the Cleveland Street District. It’s a change from what it was like when I grew up here, but a nice change. The Station Square Parking garage on Laura Street has reasonable rates of 50 cents an hour ($5 a day maximum) which is less expensive than the street meters. Monthly permits are also available.
The garage is open 24 hours a day, which is an added plus. Parking is enforced from 8am to 6pm, Monday through Friday. Multi-space Pay & Display parking meters are located throughout the garage for customer convenience. For more information about parking, enforcement, or permits, please call the Parking System office at (727) 562-4704 or visit www.MyClearwater.com.
