Ladner is surrounded by the Strait of Georgia, Tsawwassen, North Delta, and the Fraser River. Ladner is bisected by Highway 17, which runs north-south from Highway 99 to the BC Ferries terminal. Ladner Village is the main feature of Ladner. Ladner Village is a heritage community with wide, boulevard sidewalks, open-air cafes and local shops. There are heritage residences built in the 1930s, but apartment complexes replaced many of them quite a few years ago. A recent boom of condominium developments has also caused an increase in population. There are many parks throughout the community. No longer passable for boats, today they are still clean and fresh enough to allow fishing along their banks.
