The mission of the Parks, Arts, Recreation, Aquatics, and Trails (PARAT) Program is to enhance the Clearfield resident and visitor experiences through art, cultural, and recreational offerings.
The PARAT Program was voted on by Clearfield City residents in 2014 and passed with 65% voter approval. The city first received funds from PARAT in April of 2015. Every 10 years, the PARAT Program is placed on the ballot for city residents to vote for the program’s renewal and will be back on the ballot in 2024.
For each purchase made in Clearfield City that includes sales tax, one penny of every $10 spent goes to funding PARAT projects. Current completed PARAT projects include six new playgrounds, a pickleball complex, renovating the Clearfield Community Arts Center, building a dog park at Barlow Park, and more.
