Pop-Up Museums

Can you help tell the story of Delta? We’re looking for significant items to showcase in our pop-up museums at Sungod recreation centre and South Delta recreation centre! From scarves to diplomas to small family heirlooms; anything that you feel connects you to Delta will be considered. If you have an item you’d like to be displayed for Heritage Week (February 17-23) please contact Angie Grant at agrant@delta.ca.

*Please note, while all items will be considered, we can only display a small number of them. Displays will be chosen based on theme, size and space.

Delta Road Trip Bingo

Starting Monday, February 17th (Family day) you can pick up a free Delta Road Trip Bingo sheet from the North Delta Center for the Arts, Tsawwassen Arts Centre, Delta Archives, participating recreation centres, or by printing the PDF below! The sheets will include historic, important and famous buildings from all across Delta.  Families can work all week on spotting the buildings during their usual activities or they can make a day of it and explore their local areas.  Once complete, return the sheets to receive a small prize.

From Dogfights to Dog Walks

Free drop-in activity!

Fun Fact! When aircrafts battle at close range, it is called a dogfight. Did you know that aerial battles between planes have been happening since 1913?

While North 40 is an off-leash dog park today, it was once home to dogfighter pilots. Join us on a walk around the park and explore the history of Delta’s former Canadian Armed Forces station from WWII through to today. Make sure to bring your own reusable mug for a hot beverage to enjoy on the walk!

Call 604.952.3838 for more information.

*Please note: This is an active, off-leash dog park and there is a high probability that off-leash dogs will be in the park during the walk.

Meet at North 40 Park on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 from 10:30am-12pm                   

Meet at North 40 Park on Sunday, February 23, 2020 from 10:30am-12pm
