Chaldecott offers a combination of large playing fields and smaller play areas; large old cedar trees shelter the playground area and rustle moodily on breezy days. During the summer, the spraypark is a popular attraction for children of the neighbourhood.
Originally a part of the Municipality of Point Grey before the amalgamation of the city in 1929, this park is named for Francis Miller Chaldecott. Mr. Chaldecott was a lawyer who helped organize the District of South Vancouver where he owned 107 acres and he also owned a half interest in 240 acres in the Point Grey District. Francis Chaldecott died January 24, 1949.
