Things to Do
Burns Bog, Delta Nature Reserve (Picture BC photo)
With its close proximity to two urban centres, Vancouver and Surrey, Delta's rural farmlands are a refreshing getaway offering year-round activities.
Delta is one of the few places where one can rent an ice rink by the hour, enjoy a free air show, play a round of disc golf and race an open wheel Formula car or an Italian go-kart. Cyclists, walkers, golfers and bird watchers are all kept busy too.
While its largely flat landscape invites easy walking and bicycling – Tour de Delta is one of Canada's premier cycling events – the gentle, undulating hills also give way to extensive golf, mountain biking and a myriad of nature trails. Some meander along the dykes; others weave through forested uplands to ancient Burns Bog filled with unusual flora and fauna.
