Childerley Park consists of 12.7 acres and is located at 506 McHenry Road. Before being purchased by the park district in 1977, the property had two large ten-bedroom homes, a groundskeeper house, a log cabin schoolhouse, and a church reported to be the oldest in Wheeling. Back then, the grounds had an apple orchard, barns with fenced in areas for animals, and was used as a women’s refuge and as a religious retreat.
The park was originally dedicated to the residents of Wheeling in 1979 and was redeveloped and completed in 1996. Currently there is a shelter area with electricity, BBQ grills, sand volleyball courts, paths, working washroom facilities, open passive areas, two age-group playground areas, and the original church, which was dedicated as the Loraine E. Lark Chapel in 1980 and hosts non-denominational weddings.
