Deming Park is the largest park in the city parks system, consisting of more than 177 acres. This park is home to the new Oakley Playground, consisting of over 17,500 square feet of play area that is accessible to children with special needs. Among the many pieces of accessible play equipment are swing, and interactive panels for children to use. Beautiful gardens and seating areas are scattered throughout the play area for patrons to enjoy. There are two separate play areas, one for kids 5-12 years old, and another for the 2-5 year olds. The Oakley Playground is the largest one of its type in at least a 200 mile radius of Terre Haute. Over 50% of the playground apparatus in the Oakley Playground is wheelchair accessible. Deming park is also home to the Clark-LandsBaum Holley Arboretum, one of 18 in the United States and 1-21 in the World. The Arboretum is home to more than 300 hollies, representing 9 species, and 167 different cultivars.
