Delta, British Columbia

Delta … come celebrate the past … the present … and our future!

One of the sunniest and driest spots in the British Columbia Lower Mainland, Delta is home to approximately 100,000 people living in Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta. These three BC communities are as rich and alive as the name 'Delta' implies: rich in soil and water -- rich in history and industry -- and especially rich in people. The name 'Delta' itself is derived from the fact that the community is located at the delta of the Fraser River.

Located in the southwest corner of the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, the community of Delta is bordered on the north by the Fraser River, on the south by Boundary Bay and on the east by the City of Surrey.

The entire area is a naturalists delight with many parks, and a bird sanctuary. Outdoor enthusiasts can also frolic at Centennial beach, walk or bike along the dyke system where you can gaze at the majestic mountains to the north, or look out into an ocean bay. For those who like a more organized surrounding, they can visit a waterslide park or one of the local golf courses. This "sunshine capital" draws local residents, as well as those from around the world, to explore and take advantage of the delights this area has to offer.

The communities are justly proud of the amenities which are vital to the quality of life in each, different as they are from each other. Above all, people still may find a well-preserved sense of rural living in Delta. Ladner takes pride in its early heritage of farming and fishing. Many of the buildings in the area reflect this early era. A stroll through Ladner can take you back in years to a slower, quieter time. North Delta is the largest residential area in the municipality. Sunshine Hills is a prestigious development with its own tennis courts, playground, and other public leisure facilities nearby. Single-family dwellings predominate in prestigious Tsawwassen, along with low-rise townhouses and apartments, and beautiful waterfront homes.
