A vibrant suburban city with a seamless blend of rural landscapes and urban development
A vibrant and rapidly growing suburban city where urban and rural landscapes blend together, Delta is made up of three distinct communities: Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta. With a rich farming and agricultural history, Delta bodes spectacular oceanfront beaches and magnificent views of Washington state’s Mount Baker.
Delta resides on the traditional, ancestral and unceded shared territories of the xʷməθkʷəyəm (Musqueam) [mus-kwee-um] and scəwaθən məsteyəxʷ (Tsawwassen) [tsawah-sen] First Nations, and is home to the Surrey-Delta Métis Association.
Delta is bordered by the Fraser River to the north with major highway access to neighbouring cities, Richmond, Burnaby and Surrey, and is only 30 minutes (25 km) from Vancouver's city centre. With stunning views of Mount Baker to the south from almost anywhere in the city, the community is centrally located between Washington state’s Peach Arch border crossing and the Vancouver International Airport (YVR), and is home to the BC Ferries Tsawwassen ferry terminal. Delta is the westernmost community within the Fraser Health region.
Delta is home to nearly 100,000 people who live and work within the many cities of the Lower Mainland.
Delta has a number of public and private schools from kindergarten through to grade 12, with easy access to post-secondary and higher education institutions in neighbouring cities.
The farms and pastures provide a distinctive rural character to Delta and produce some of British Columbia’s best turf, vegetables and nursery plants. While fertile soil allows for farming interests in the region to diversify and equestrian facilities to thrive, Delta is also home to aerospace, manufacturing, construction, energy, transportation, deep sea and river shipping, communication and tourism.
Things To Do
Delta is well known for its world-class bird watching at Boundary Bay Regional Park and various wildlife sanctuaries. Relax at one of Delta’s oceanfront beaches, escape to nature and a network of walking and biking trails in the Burns Bog Nature Reserve, or spend the day shopping at Tsawwassen Mills Outlet Mall.
Delta is also home to a variety of recreational activities for the whole family, including golfing, boating, and visiting local nurseries or the Big Splash Water Park.
