TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Parks and Recreation Department is reminding residents of increased traffic during December in the area of Deming Park on the city’s east side.

“Christmas in the Park” brings thousands of additional vehicles through the park each December, creating a concern for vehicle and pedestrian safety, the department said in a news release.

These added vehicles will be exiting the park north or south onto Fruitridge Avenue or crossing Fruitridge to Ohio Boulevard.
