Delta is 27 kilometers (17 miles) southeast of Vancouver and 22 kilometers (14 miles) north of White Rock and the Canada/United States border post at Peace Arch/Douglas.
Bordering Surrey on the east, North Delta is surrounded by water on three sides. With the Fraser River to the north, the Georgia Strait to the west and Boundary Bay to the south, North Delta is a middle class community known for its many parks, green spaces and wildlife habitat.
Across the river to the west is Annacis Island and Richmond, accessible via the Alex Fraser Bridge. Clark Drive in Panorama Ridge marks North Delta’s boundary to the south.
With five high schools and fifteen elementary schools, North Delta is a family-oriented municipality and offers a relaxed lifestyle. Amenities include walking and biking trails in Watershed Park, the George Mackie Library opposite Nordel Shopping Centre and three recreation complexes: the North Delta Recreational centre which features a softball pitch, a skateboard park and a small kid’s camp; the Sungod Recreation Centre with a swimming pool and an indoor ice rink; and the Great Pacific Forum ice arena.
Burns Bog, which runs alongside Delta, is a wetlands ecosystem that sustains a wide variety of flora and fauna including 24 species of mammal and 150 bird species. A rest stop for migrating birds and a breeding ground for many species, Burns Bog is the largest domed peat bog on the west coast of North America and covers an area of 10,000 acres (15.6 square miles).
Delta Nature Reserve is in the northeast corner of the bog and contains three loops of boardwalk and trails, a beaver dam and a cedar grove. A 17-minute drive from North Delta will take you to Deas Island, situated between Delta and Richmond, with its 300-acre regional park, walking trails and scenic views of the Fraser River.
