The landscape of Deming Park is reminiscent of the hilly and verdant area of the Lost Creek Settlement, which was north and east of the park. The park is a highly attractive and well used facility. It includes a public swimming pool, an 18-hole disc golf course, the Oakley Playground, tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, horseshoe pits, the Clark-Landsbaum Holly Arboretum, many picnic shelters for gatherings of various sizes, a moving toy train for children to ride, an office and meeting center (the Torner Center), a Free Little Library, one large mural, one sculpture (installed in 2015 by Art Spaces), and a fountain. There is an actual functioning train track that runs through the western edge of the park. All of the roads through the park are paved.

Deming Park forms the eastern end of the Ohio Boulevard-Deming Park Historic District.  Ohio Boulevard was designated in 1989. Deming Park began functioning as a park in 1921. The Boulevard runs from 19th Street to Fruitridge, and then Deming Park continues to Keane Lane. On the south side the park is bounded by Poplar Street and on the north by woods and other properties that continue to Wabash Avenue. The selected site is adjacent to an existing paved park road with nearby parking and easy access for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. It is 80 feet east of a park picnic shelter and 70 feet west of a walking trail that heads southeast to the convergence of Poplar St. and Keane Lane at the southeast corner of the park.
