Parks, Recreation & Culture

Who We Are

The Parks, Recreation & Culture Department develops, coordinates and delivers parks, recreation and culture services, events, and programs that encourage active participation for all ages and ability levels. 

What We Do

Parks, Recreation & Culture provides recreational activities and a wide range of instructional programs through City-operated facilities, including pools, arenas, arts, seniors and fitness centres. The Department manages over 340,000 square feet of recreational facilities, oversees Delta’s Emergency Social Services and Leisure Access Assistance programs, and coordinates the direction and operations for parks and open spaces, including sports fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, community gardens, cemeteries, trails, boat launches and more. 

Parks, Recreation & Culture promotes awareness and interest in healthy lifestyles through participation in recreational activities and volunteer opportunities and works closely with community groups, service clubs and not-for-profit organizations to enhance community services. The Department also delivers countless community events throughout Delta, such as the Boundary Bay Airshow, Canada Day, Tour de Delta, and the Luminary Festival.
