What You can
Expect in Sunny Delta,
Delta is a city in British Columbia surrounded by water on three sides – the Fraser River to the north, Georgia Strait to the west, and Boundary Bay to the south. Historically a fishing and farming community, it derives its name from the delta formed by Fraser River silt accumulating over hundreds of years.
Whether you’re planning a short or long stay in Delta, here are some important information:
– Delta has three distinct communities. Largely suburban, North Delta is home to more than half of the city’s population. It is bordered by Surrey and Burns Bog. Tsawwassen is a suburban community with luxury homes lining the coast. Ladner is a 19th-century fishing community that has developed into a suburb.
– Delta has a warm-summer Mediterranean climate with milder winters and cooler summers than other locations on the Canada-US border. This relatively dry climate makes the city the “sunniest” in Metro Vancouver.
– The lifestyle is rather relaxed and there are plenty of social, cultural, and recreational opportunities available. Discover over 70 natural areas and parks in Delta, outdoor and indoor recreation facilities, and playing fields. Boundary Bay Regional Park is an ideal bird watching area, while Deas Island Regional Park is great for fishing. Go hiking and discover wildlife in the Delta Nature Reserve.

– Get in the city via Vancouver International Airport or Highway 99, traveling from the US border through Delta. Highway 17 takes you from Highway 99 in Ladner south to the ferry terminal of Tsawwassen. While there’s no rapid transit system, you can get around by bus via the South Coast British Columbia Transportation Authority.
