In ode to the upcoming bout of sunshine, and to our last blog post, we wanted to expand on the outdoor activities available to you this spring break. If you live in Delta, then you’re in for a real treat. Delta is home to a vast array of options – from nature-esque hikes and trails, to parks and beaches, all the way to seeing wildlife in many forms. This blog post will outline many out-of-door opportunities that you can take advantage of this spring break.
To get yourself in the sunshine-y mood, why not will the season to come a little early with a beach day? Deemed one of (if not the) best beach in the Lower Mainland, Centennial offers a large, sandy spread for all to enjoy. It includes an awesome playground for the kids and a great concession stand for when the kids are hungry from all their playing! On top of that, Centennial Beach is peaceful; as the tide goes out, uncover unique rocks, a great place for a stroll, and views for days.
Moreover, a popular spot along Centennial Beach is Boundary Bay, and more specifically, the 12th Avenue Dyke Trail. Here, you can follow a trail that offers incredible chances to view wildlife, such as waterfowl, ducks, and other birds. There’s also a breathtaking viewing platform that overlooks the region.
Hangout with nature’s habitants
With respect in mind, another memorable way to spend your spring break is to view fascinating wildlife. Delta offers some of the best views and variety in the Lower Mainland.
For one, Reifel Bird Sactuary is a fairly easy, 5km round trip walk. Available to explore year round, you can expect to see the likes of many migratory birds through bird blinds positioned along the trail.
If you’re a big wildlife fan, and that stardom translates to underwater-life as well, then a great option to consider is Vancouver Whale Watch. This safe-for-all excursion could allow you to see Southern Resident Killer Whales, Transient Killer Whales, and Humpback Whales, as well as other majestic marine wildlife. Located in Steveston, this opportunity is not too far from Delta, and will be truly unforgettable.
As mentioned in our last blog post, Brunswick Point and Burns Bog Delta Nature Reserve are two stunning outdoor spots to experience. Check it out below:
