The City of Delta
The name says it all: It's a city rich in soil and water.
Profile Last Updated: March 13, 2008
Delta, as denoted by its name, is a city teeming with soil and water. Fishing and farming play a very important role in the economic and social life of its residents. The land is littered with dairy and produce farms. And even with the construction of modern apartments and condominiums, Delta still has pastoral feel to it.
Delta boasts some of the best natural scenery in the Lower Mainland. Bike and walking trails criss-cross waterfront parks on the Fraser River, Boundary Bay and the Strait of Georgia. Another hikeable site is Burns Bog - all 10,000 acres of it. For top-notch birding, the Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary is perfect for exploring birds in their natural habitats. Splashdown Water Park offers waterslides and a picnic area. And Delta provides the only land access to the beautiful beaches of Point Roberts.
Why Live Here
Delta is a harmonious blend of the old and new. Clean quiet neighbourhoods, each with it's own distinct character, take up 364 square kilometres. The relative low population in comparison with other cities in the Lower Mainland and the higher than average household income attracts new homeowners and businesses alike.
