About Ladner

Ladner is a heritage fishing village situated next to the Fraser River. It is home to the civic precinct, including Delta City Hall and Delta Hospital. Ladner is the main hub of Delta's agriculture industry, with Westham Island offering a scenic tour of some of Delta's most popular farms and roadside farmstands. Historic buildings, such as Harris Barn on Arthur Drive, line Ladner's roads, and it is a popular destination for bird lovers due in part to the George C. Reifel Bird Sanctuary.

Ladner is bound to the west by the Strait of Georgia, the south by Tsawwassen, to the east by North Delta, and north by the Fraser River. Ladner is bisected by Highway 17A, which runs north-south from Highway 99 to the BC Ferries terminal. It is an easy 30-minute drive from Surrey and a 20-minute drive from Richmond.
