Living in Delta
Delta is known for its many parks, green spaces and wildlife habitat. Residents and visitors take advantage of the large network of biking and walking trails in Watershed Park and Burns Bog at the Delta Nature Reserve. For social and cultural activities, Delta offers restaurants, art galleries, golf and shopping.
North Delta borders Surrey on the east side by Scott Road (120th Street), and on the north side by 96th Avenue and the Fraser River. Burns Bog is to the west and Panorama Ridge marks the community’s southern edge at Ladner Trunk Road.
Delta has a hospital, an airport, a museum and archives, libraries, sports and recreational facilities, and many bike and walking trails in a varied network of parks including waterfront parks on the Fraser River, Boundary Bay and Strait of Georgia.
Delta encompasses 180 square kilometres bordered by the Fraser River on the north, the United States border and Boundary Bay on the south, the City of Surrey on the east and the Strait of Georgia on the west.
Residents enjoy safe, clean and quiet neighbourhoods, and the stable prosperity of the community makes it attractive for businesses to choose as their preferred location. Delta’s estimated household average income is 30 per cent higher than the Canadian average. The municipality also has one of the fastest growing industrial areas in Greater Vancouver.
With the support of a strong farming and agricultural foundation, Delta has grown into three thriving communities: Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta. We are a vibrant municipality that is rich in soil and water, rich in history and industry, and especially rich in people.
