Located within a half-hour drive of Vancouver, and edging the US/Canada border, Delta (pop. 102,655) packs a punch when it comes to pioneer history, natural assets of beaches, parks and farmlands, as well as port activity that sustains economic clout.
Comprising three very different communities: North Delta, Tsawwassen and Ladner, Delta’s diverse attributes are now becoming great attractions. The gentle landscapes give way to seven golf courses; the many dykes provide easy walking, cycling and equestrian trails and water sports, from skim boarding to kayaking are popular pursuits.
Although Delta has no town centre, per se, there’s a community spirit that threads its disparate neighbourhoods together. Festivals and special events are year round affairs, from Carol Ship Parades in December to Canada Day celebrations in July.
